McGregor and Poirier run it back on January 23 at UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi following their explosive featherweight clash in 2014.
And 'The Notorious' is gunning for a similar demolition job as he eyes a knockout inside 60 seconds.
Speaking ahead of his rematch, he said: "I like Dustin. I think he's a good fighter.
"He's even a great fighter. But great is still levels below me. I'll knock Dustin out inside 60 seconds."
McGregor hasn't fought since his destruction of Donald Cerrone in January 2020.
Poirier, on the other hand, has been fairly active over the years, having last fought in June when he went to war with Dan Hooker.
And he's hoping to be "dropping in blood" during his rematch with McGregor.

He said: "I didn't even get to fight you know, the fight didn't even get to blossom
"But that's fighting anything can happen under those lights...What I want is for us to both be dripping blood and hurting and suffering early in the fight. Then we can find out who's a real fighter. You know, that's what I want.
"I want to be bleeding. Within a minute of the first round clock. I want us both to be bleeding and really have to dig down and see who's the better fighter, see who really wants to be in there.
"You know, because I don't have a safety net...I want to be in there. I know that, and I'd like to find out if he does."
