Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor have unofficially agreed to fight in the lightweight category, which should take place on July 10 in Las Vegas.
In their previous two encounters, Conor McGregor took the first victory by knockout in the first round of the UFC 178 event, and Dustin Poirier in the second match by knockout in the second round at the UFC 257 event.
On the occasion of preparations for the trilogy against Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier chose an awkward training partner. Namely, it is about Brian Shaw, a four-time winner of the “World Strongest Man” award.
At one point Dustin Poirier took Brian’s back and secured a rear-naked choke and forced him to tap. As always, every story has two sides so does this one.
