Both the fighters are training extensively for the fight as they will seek to go 2-1 up in the trilogy. While McGregor won the first meeting, ‘The Diamond’ earned a win earlier this year.

This time, though, ‘The Notorious’ will look to avoid his mistakes from UFC 257. In a recent interview with TheMacLife, White said, “I don’t know Conor looked damn good in that first round, you know. I don’t know how well he prepared for the fight, I don’t know what he did. I don’t know. You know the difference between his training came for that fight and this fight.”

“I can tell you this from what I can see. He is taking this fight a lot more serious than he did in the last fight. He’s doing things you know, he is basically shut down in his own little world doing his thing. It feels like the old Conor McGregor.”
