Notorious’ found success at different points in the second fight and even stunned Dustin Poirier on a few occasions. However, it was his inability to check Poirier’s leg kicks that ultimately cost him the win at UFC 257. If he manages to correct his past errors, he will be a massive threat to ‘The Diamond’ early on in the fight.

However, McGregor and his camp will be wise to assume that Dustin Poirier will come in with a new game plan. UFC 264 is receiving a lot of buzz and regardless of the outcome, it’s clear that the entire world will be watching the grudge match unfold.
