Conor McGregor Attempts To Rattle Dustin Poirier In Taunting Audio Message

Conor McGregor is known for not being shy when it comes to calling out the big names in combat sports.

So his recent taunt at Dustin Poirier comes as no surprise.

McGregor returns to the Octagon this Saturday to face Dustin Poirier in a UFC 264 bout. Their last clash saw Poirier claiming revenge with a second-round TKO. This came after their first contest where McGregor scored a first-round TKO in 2014 on his rise to the heights of the UFC.

Experts predict that McGregor's inactivity since his loss to Nate Diaz in 2016 could hinder him against a sharp-looking Poirier.

Dustin Poirier's coach Mike Brown believes he is looking better than ever. He's predicted that it could be a fight of the year contender and is confident that his man could get the job done within the 25-minute limit.

During the pre-fight stare downs for UFC 178, UFC President Dana White had to separate the pair as an enraged Poirier took offence to the Irishman's mental tactics.

This time around there seems to be a lot more respect between the two featherweights as they enter the twilight of their careers.

Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor's second outing at UFC 257 recorded the second-highest pay-per-view sales in the promotion's history. Expectations ahead of their next fight are to exceed those figures.
