Furthermore, McGregor’s post has also garnered attention due to the fact that he is seen sporting a black eye. Conor McGregor is less than three weeks away from his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier and it’s clear he’s getting ready. The scrap is McGregor’s opportunity to clinch bragging rights and secure a title shot against Charles Oliveira.
