In his costume as a pure observer, he still managed to make himself heard. His predictions for the next duel between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier For example caused a lot of talk. The favorite announced as soon as the second round passed, the American instead confirmed these statements on behalf of Sports Center.
I think in any fight, if it finally starts, I end up finding my rhythm and timing, and it becomes difficult for anyone. I really think I am one of the best lightweight fighters in the world, and the longer I stay in the octagon, the more comfortable I become, and the worse things get for my opponent.
A lot of people point out Connor’s lack of cardio, and say he won’t last long in round four or five, but I don’t even think about that in my setup. I expect this guy to maintain a high pace for 25 minutes. We’ll see on Saturday if we get to this, but I’m expecting the best from it.
I only know that if the battle continues, I will be the best fighter.
Confident in his resistance to time, Pourier hopes to prolong the fun as much as possible in a few days. However, he is wary of the role that the confrontation can take, according to which the slightest mistake will be paid in cash.
I think whoever succeeds in capitalizing first after a mistake will win. There is very little room for error, because we are the best in the world when it comes to finishing the opponent. So when you have two people like that, the first mistake is very costly, and I really think whoever makes it will add a loss to their record.
So Dustin Poirier shares the opinion of Khabib Nurmagomedov, and believes that his chances of success will increase, while the fight will be prolonged. Only the fact of the cage will tell you if he shoots correctly, or if he is too confident.
