Conor McGregor was supremely confident ahead of his rematch against Dustin Poirier. The former two-division world champion stated that he would end the fight within 60 seconds. While ‘Mystic Mac’ has been accurate with his predictions more often than not, this time around ‘The Notorious’ got it extremely wrong.

Conor McGregor shares his thoughts on his children going into MMA

Recently, Conor McGregor took time out of his day to answer questions for his followers. Fans flooded with questions as ‘The Notorious’ put out an #asknotorious tweet. 

One such fan asked McGregor if he would encourage his children to get into MMA. The Irish superstar replied, “Yes! I’ve been training my son since day 1. He will be ready if he decides too. I am going to do this fight away from the family also. For a change. Fights and boppies and cuddles is a hard one to balance. I’m going into this one a wild dog.”

Conor McGregor has to address a few areas of his game. He has to make a few changes if he is to beat Dustin Poirier in the rematch. The former champion has a solid team behind him, marshaled by head coach John Kavanagh, and striking coach Owen Roddy.

However, it appears as though Conor McGregor has not started training camp yet as he is still in Dubai. For his UFC 257 rematch against Poirier, McGregor and his team set up a training camp in Portugal.
