The rematch between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier was a stark contrast to the first one. Although it has been seven years since their first fight, both men were still top fighters. Also, the build-up was a lot different. ‘The Notorious’ engaged in relentless trash talk and broke Dustin down mentally before he even stepped in the octagon.

In the second fight, ‘The Notorious’ took a novel approach. This time around, there was little to no trash talk, instead, there was a lot of mutual admiration between the two men. ‘The Notorious’ was very complimentary about Dustin’s journey back to the top after setbacks and the good work he was doing with his foundation. 

To that extent the Irish fighter also pledged a $500,000 donation to ‘The Good Fight Foundation’, which Dustin recently revealed never materialized.

Following the tweets put up by Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor’s manager Audie Attar responded to the same saying, “Dustin! Why you frontin? Did you forget the face to face meeting we just had in Utah with our families? Where we stood by you as you tried to get more $ from the UFC? Conor is as generous as it gets. Don’t dismiss his business savvy. He always gets it done. This is a low move man.”

Recent twitter exchanges between the two men suggest that the buildup to the third fight. Should it happen, would be a lot different. Conor McGregor will pull out all the stops against Dustin Poirier when it comes to mental warfare and try to get in his head ahead of their rematch.

However, at this point in time, it does not look likely that a third fight will take place since McGregor stated he is looking for another opponent. Regardless of who McGregor fights, it will be a spectacle and a huge night of business for the company.
