Conor McGregor has said his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 will be “the end of the road” for the American.
After coming back to the trash at Saturday’s lightweight bout press conference in Las Vegas, the Irishman kicked 32-year-old Poirier.
Poirier said McGregor’s ‘aura is gone’ after beating the former two-weight world champion in January to avenge his defeat in 2014.
“He ended up here, that’s it for him,” said McGregor, also 32.
After ramping up from their first fight, McGregor and Poirier shows mutual respect before and after the rematch at UFC 257.
But back, the name calling and bravado of “The Notorious” at T-Mobile Arena, despite losing three of his last six MMA fights to drop to a 22-5 record.
The winner of Saturday’s fight is set to face UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira before the end of 2021.
McGregor briefly held the title after defeating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 to become the first UFC fighter to be world champion in two weight divisions simultaneously.
After that fight, he sadly said, “I would like to take this opportunity to apologize … to absolutely no one.”
“I’m an evolution of that type,” McGregor added Thursday. “I am better than this man. I feel like I’ve come full circle and can’t wait to show it off.
“This night was widely regarded as the greatest performance in UFC history. This Saturday night performance, I’m going to surpass it. “
