Conor McGregor vows 'in 25 days I finish the job' and predicts KO of Dustin Poirier in UFC 264 trilogy fight

Conor McGregor vows 'in 25 days I finish the job' and predicts KO of Dustin Poirier in UFC 264 trilogy fight

CONOR MCGREGOR has vowed to 'finish the job' he started in his rematch with Dustin Poirier in their trilogy fight next month.

The Irishman will lock horns with the former interim lightweight champion in a rubber match on July 10 in the main event of UFC 264 in Las Vegas.

McGregor, 32, was knocked out in the second round of his January showdown with The Diamond but hurt the American in the first.

And The Notorious is hellbent on returning the favour in their Sin City series decider.

Alongside an Instagram post featuring a snap of him landing a shovel hook on Poirier, McGregor wrote: "25 days I finish the job."

Defeat to Poirier has lit a fire under the UFC's poster boy, who has vowed to turn in a picture-perfect performance in the Vegas desert.

The pride of Dublin said: "All the marbles are on the line.

"I'm here training very, very hard. I'm about to go for my second session of the day. I'm in great condition already.


"I beat him in the original bout [in 2014]. I lost in the rematch.

"And then we've got trilogy, I've got a few little adjustments to make.

"I feel very, very confident. I'm very focused and driven.

"And I'll go in there and put on one hell of a performance and get it back on July 10th."

McGregor hasn't tasted victory at lightweight in nearly five years, with his last win in the weight class being his destruction of Eddie Alvarez in November 2016.

Mystic Mac plans to end his drought in emphatic fashion, saying: "July 10th I will do this absolutely flawlessly.

"We have these clowns sussed and fully!

"They wanna play a game of tactics? No problem, see you in there.

"You’ve awoken a beast. A beast with the backing of a much higher power! Say your prayers."

But fan favourite Poirier has vowed to turn in a repeat performance, telling ESPN: "I'm gonna stop Conor again.

"July 10, I'm gonna get my hand raised and I'm gonna finish Conor McGregor again."
