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.

Who is going to win the trilogy? Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier?

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.
