Conor McGregor is set to meet Dustin Poirier at UFC 178 and during a recent media tour for the event, he talked about the fight:
“This is who I am. I like to look good and whoop ass. It’s what I do best, said McGregor. I’m not trying to be nobody but me and on Sept. 27, I’ll rip Dustin’s head clean off. It makes no difference that it’s a little pea head. Dustin’s all talk. Dustin thinks it’s all talk, but when he wakes up with his nose plastered on the other side of his face, he’s going to know it’s not all talk.”
Conor McGregor (15-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) tries to continue his ten fight winning streak and get that very elusive 11 fight win streak against Cole Miller. In his last four fights this is how his history goes. He beat Dave Hill via rear naked choke back in June of 2012 to win the vacant Cage Warriors FC Featherweight Championship.
“Don’t get me wrong; I like the kid. He’s a quiet little hillbilly from the back-ass of nowhere. I’ve nothing against the guy. I’m sure he grew up in a circus or a farm. He’s a nice little kid. His cousin is probably named Cletus or something. I don’t know. He’s a nice kid, but his chin is getting cracked, and it’s going to be cracked early.”
McGregor’s next fight was for another weight class championship against Ivan Buchinger via knockout back in December of 2012. He left the promotion to make his UFC debut with a knockout of the night win over Marcus Brimage in April of 2013. Finally, he beat Max Holloway via unanimous decision in August. He then beat Diego Brandao at UFC Fight Night 46 in July of 2014.
“His chin is deteriorating. Every single contest he gets in, he hits one knee. A gust of wind, and he does the chicken dance. Coming up against me, that’s not going to be good. I’m going to crack him with a jab and he’s going to wobble, and I’m going to put him away early. It’s going to be a first-round KO. Mark my words.”
UFC 178 takes place Sept. 27 in Las Vegas, Nevada live on pay-per-view. The main event will be a rematch from a classic fight between Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson.
