Dustin Poirier has claimed that he will be heading into his rematch against Conor McGregor with the mindset of having a war against “The Notorious One”. The Irishman has predicted a 60-second KO of Poirier and believes he will get the job done quickly at UFC 257.
A veteran fighter Michael Chandler who will be fighting on his first UFC pay-per-view bout will be taking on Dan Hooker in a co-main event. He believes Poirier will give Mcgregor problems in this rematch.
“I do because if you know anything about Dustin Poirier, you know that he thrives in the battle. He relishes the challenge of being in the deep waters, of being cut up and bleeding, and beaten down. Because that’s where he really pulls something out of himself and becomes that champion, that is Dustin Poirier,” said Michael Chandler.
