The early retired champ Henry Cejudo, in a recent interview with Helen Yee Sports, offered some advice to Conor McGregor.
Considering how Triple C carries an immense amount of experience across different weight divisions, he is perfectly equipped to be an excellent analyst.
Cejudo seemed pretty confident in what he said as he had already seen the Conor vs Poirier fight. Cejudo offered his two cents on why Conor lost his previous fight.
He went on to say, “Actually striking the thing is Conor stands too much in that borderline and more into the fight zone that’s for the same reason that he’s getting caught. So if I was him I would I would brush up.”
Henry Cejudo made some predictions about the upcoming fight between Conor and Poirier. He claimed, “I think now looking at looking back at it now it’s going to be Dustin again, and I was wrong I was really thinking I underestimated Dustin’s mindset because of the first fight.”
‘The Messenger’ underestimated Poirier and his skills and judged him right after the first fight, but that changed after UFC 257.
Both, Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier have come a long way from UFC 178 after Conor beat Poirier via technical knockout. Subsequently, ‘The Diamond’ redeemed himself at UFC 257.
Now the former featherweight champion and the former Interim UFC Lightweight Champion are looking to break this stalemate to win the trilogy.
Dustin Poirier has developed so much ever since he fought Conor McGregor for the first time. He’s a much better fighter today than he used to be.
What’s more, Conor is a much better fighter whose power and precision are unquestionable. He knows his techniques and combinations. The upcoming trilogy will be one of the most sensational fights in UFC history.
Who do you think among these two will win and take the limelight?
