UFC Release Spine-Tingling Extended Promo Video For Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2

UFC Release Spine-Tingling Extended Promo Video For Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2

If you're not hyped up for the rematch between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier after watching this video, then there must be something seriously wrong with you.

McGregor's return to the octagon is less than two weeks away and the UFC reminded everyone of that with the only way they know how: by releasing an intense, spine-tingling promo clip.

Dana White and Co have already posted a ton of hype videos on their social media channels in their build up to UFC 257 on Fight Island, but this new one might just be their best yet.

The three and a half minute long clip delves into the past rivalry between McGregor and Poirier which dates back to 2014 when the two fighters met at UFC 178.

You're reminded of the mental warfare and mind games that occurred outside of the octagon in the build up to their bout - most of it coming directly from the McGregor camp.

The Irishman ultimately had his hand raised thanks to a TKO stoppage in the very first round, meaning Poirier joined the growing list of big-name scalps on McGregor's impressive resume as his rapid rise to the top continued.

But this time round, Poirier enters the octagon a completely different fighter.

After going on an impressive win streak himself, 'The Diamond' successfully captured the UFC interim lightweight title by defeating featherweight legend Max Holloway.

Not only have his stocks soared through the roof since that dark day back in 2014, but Poirier has also improved drastically as a mixed martial artist as he heads into his rematch with McGregor.

And with commentary from some of the biggest names in the sport, this new extended promo highlights just how far he's come on his journey.

While legendary commentator Joe Rogan is heard saying: "Dustin Poirier is a much improved fighter since the last time they fought. Dustin Poirier is a man on a mission."

Then there's McGregor, who needs no explaining.

The video perfectly captures his meteoric rise through the ranks which saw him go on to transcend mixed martial arts altogether.

It's a special, special trailer indeed.

Oh, and the music playing over the top is a cover of the 1980s classic "I Ran (So Far Away)" by A Flock of Seagulls.
