Conor McGregor Tells Dustin Poirier 'We'll Do It Again' In Classy Post Fight Meeting

Conor McGregor told Dustin Poirier 'we'll do it again,' after the pair met following the American's win at UFC 257 on Saturday night.

Poirier upset the odds as he got revenge for his loss over six years ago to McGregor, by scoring a second round stoppage.

The Irishman had parked his usual antics in the build up to the fight and taken a far more respectful approach to his opponent than usual, even compared to their first fight at UFC 178.

McGregor continued his humble streak after the fight, sticking around to do an interview in the octagon, which is often reserved just for the victor, and praising his opponent.

The pair met after the post fight press conferences with the Notorious continuing to praise Poirier for his leg kicks and saying they'd 'do it again,' with the score now 1-1 between them.

During the meeting Poirier, who is a previous interim lightweight champion, referenced McGregor's coach being right about his mindset.

The Irishman's coach, John Kavanagh, had questioned whether the stoppage in their first fight would still be on the 32-year-old's mind, and he said it had but he'd clearly used it as motivation rather than as an issue.

In another moment where they bumped into each other, the Notorious jokingly told the Diamond 'you broke my leg, you b*stard,' following all the leg kicks which started the end for McGregor.

Poirier's win was the first time someone had knocked McGregor out, with his previous UFC losses coming by submission against Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov, and will likely lead to a title shot.

However there is obviously scope for the two men to meet further down the road and McGregor isn't the only one who agrees. UFC president Dana White admitted there was a possibility with them being 1-1.

Of course McGregor is also 1-1 with Nate Diaz, after their pair of meetings in 2016, and as yet there's no sign of their third fight happening.
