The 32-year-old « Notorious » will set foot in the UFC cage for the first time in almost exactly a year while standing in front of the former title challenger Poirier on « Fight Island » on 23. January in a sequel to their UFC 178 clash six years ago, which McGregor won through TKO in the first round.
All these years later, both men approach their second fight on a very different basis than their first.
McGregor has become one of the greatest generation stars in martial arts, winning world titles in two different weight classes in order to realize his fortune-telling « Mystic Mac » predictions in which he promised just that.
Poirier also enters the fight in a different passage. Since that defeat by McGregor, he has won an (inter) world title in the lightweight, before surrendering to the Russian champion Khabib Nurmagomedov’s second title defense last year.
Predictably, all eyes are on the returning McGregor who will just be his third UFC fight in the past four years.
Judging by the pictures on his Instagram, McGregor has left no stone unturned to enter the fight in the highest shape.
The now-shaved provocateur seemed torn as he wrote on the social media platform, apparently from a Portuguese airport, that he had nothing to explain to customs « except my genius » while posting photos of him, which were adorned with a skin-tight top.
McGregor has been to Portugal for the past few weeks. The city council posted photos of him exercising on Camilo Beach in Lagos. He wrote online: « Who would have thought that the emblematic stairs of this dream beach would be used? » for a power sprint from this famous athlete? «
The Dubliner is said to have previously lived in a luxury villa worth 13. Live at $ 500 but will be returning to his native Ireland for final preparations ahead of the UFC’s first high-profile fight in the New Year.
