Recently the official weigh-ins for the UFC 264 event took place. Both McGregor and ‘The Diamond’ successfully made the weight at 156lbs. However, there was still one thing about the weigh-ins that caught the attention of everyone present there.

That thing was Conor McGregor’s attire, as ‘Notorious’ was not wearing the official UFC kit. The UFC expects fighters to wear the Venum UFC Fight Kit to official events. However, McGregor seemed to have missed the memo as he came into the weigh-ins wearing his own shorts and a Black Forge t-shirt.

Black Forge is the pub that ‘Notorious’ had purchased last year. Therefore, it seemed like McGregor wanted to promote his pub at the UFC 264 weigh-ins. However, Dana White seemed visibly upset about McGregor not wearing the official kit.

As soon as McGregor entered the stage, White had a few words with McGregor that seemed to irritate him. This event is the biggest UFC event of the year and therefore White was expecting his most popular fighter to wear the official kit and promote their new partner, Crypto.com.

‘Notorious’ meanwhile had other ideas, as he wore a shirt promoting his very own pub. Many people even believe that McGregor can even be fined for not sporting the official UFC kit.

What to expect from the trilogy fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier?

With the score between McGregor and Poirier settled at 1-1, both fighters would look to get the decisive victory. Therefore, we can expect both fighters to come in, all guns blazing. The previous 2 fights between the fighters also ended in TKO, proving that we can expect even this fight to end in a knockout as well.

Going into the fight, ‘The Diamond’ will be the more confident of the two as Poirier won the last fight between them at UFC 257. McGregor on the other hand would look to learn from that fight and focus more on conventional MMA styles rather than boxing.

‘Notorious’ would also be wary of the dangerous calf kicks of Poirier, which were a major reason for his loss in the last fight.
