The 32-year-old has taken to Instagram to reel off another one of his famous predictions and is vowing to rearrange the American's nose when they meet again on July 10th.
"The prediction is in!" McGregor said on Instagram. "I'm going to win the trilogy fight via A Front Kick to the nose. Round number 4. His Nose needs straightenin [sic] and I'm Rhinoplasty."
McGregor had previously predicted Jose Aldo would get emotional and overreach, leading to a knockout and also said he'd wobble Poirier before putting him away in the first round of their first encounter. Both predictions proved correct, earning him the 'Mystic Mac' moniker.
After a year away from fighting and the octagon, Poirier clinched a TKO victory over McGregor at UFC 257 in January - despite the Irishman's claims that he would have the rematch done within 60 seconds.
Poirier was then offered a shot at the title vacated by Khabib Nurmagomedov but instead chose the more lucrative option of a third fight with McGregor at UFC 264.
McGregor says he will make the tactical adjustments necessary to ensure he triumphs against Poirier.
"Double skills work," he tweeted. "I also didn't take rest days unless I absolutely had to. Not one. Not even a Sunday. I will take this approach again for my comeback fight.

Dana White is yet to officially confirm a venue for the contest but has strongly hinted that it will be the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in July.
McGregor first took on Poirier in a featherweight contest in 2014 and stopped him inside two minutes.
