President Dana White’s confidence will come true or whether the one-way scenario between Conor and Poirier will resume. UFC 257, Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 2, is the first major event of 2021, also the return of the Irish puncher after a year of absence.
However, when looking at the skills of the two sides, although both improved compared to the confrontation 6 years ago when Conor knocked out Dustin Poirier after less than 1 half, many viewers believe that the second match will not be different. what is the first time?
Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier are both better than six years ago
It can be said that it is difficult to find a match, but both boxers have improved and reached a peak after 6 years. After 6 years both of them are firmly in the top positions in the lightweight and have even owned their championship belt. Until recently, they still showed a perfect performance in each match.
On the audience side, the debate also split into two sides, whether the match will take place as the first or Dustin will make it difficult for Conor McGregor.
With Khabib Nurmagomedov unlikely to return to the lightweight, Conor McGregor is considered the brightest candidate for the championship. If you can surpass Dustin Poirier, returning to the pinnacle of the UFC with Irish gloves becomes even easier than ever.
According to the coach of Conor McGregor, the confrontation at UFC 257 will be no different from 6 years ago. UFC 257 has just over a month to go official, seeing the 4th time Conor McGregor has led a major event, though not a title match.
Unlike UFC 246 when defeating Donald Cerrone, the challenge called Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 is judged much more difficult, because “The Diamond” is the puncher with the most attractive attack in the tournament.
However, through recent activities on the personal page, the audience is seeing a Conor McGregor actively practicing instead of the long travel in the middle of the year.
The audience is expecting a more intense match than before
UFC 257 is scheduled to take place on January 23, 2021, at “Fight Island – Duel Island”, Abu Dhabi, UAE. As expected by President Dana White, this is not only the return of the number one UFC superstar but also the tournament that allows the audience to watch live, bringing activities back to normal since the time of closing due to COVID-19.
