Poirier and McGregor faced off at UFC 178 back in September 2014.

McGregor defeated the American inside two minutes via TKO.

It was a dominant display from McGregor who was still climbing the ranks in UFC at that point.

It's very high praise from Poirier who has faced big names in the Lightweight and Featherweight divisions.

Some of those include Max Holloway, Justin Gaethje as well as Khabib Nurmagomedov who defeated McGregor in his last UFC fight.

McGregor is currently preparing for a return to the octagon which is set for some time next year.

Poirier is keen for a rematch with the former 'Champ-Champ' and even challenged him back in September.
