UFC 257 will be taking place tonight from the ETIHAD Arena in Abu Dhabi. The ’˜Notorious’ Conor McGregor will be facing Dustin Poirier in the main event of the night, with the winner of that bout likely to be included in a Lightweight Title fight next.
During the pre-fight press conference, Conor McGregor would discuss how he is preparing to put on a ‘masterpiece’ when he steps in the cage against Dustin Poirier.
‘I think it’s a myth,’ McGregor stated at the press conference in Abu Dhabi when asked by one of the journalists in attendance about any potential stamina/cardiovascular issues. ‘Obviously, I had the Diaz one, first Diaz fight. I went from featherweight, and then a month or so later, I was at welterweight. That’s obviously gonna have an impact, and then there were other issues. But I think overall, it’s a myth and it’s a myth that’s out there and that’s it. I hope we can answer it and I will answer it in time at some stage.”
Conor McGregor on Striking
‘I keep showing up here, someone’s gonna be able to stay in the pocket with me and stay in there and fight with me and I hope it’s this Saturday night” Conor McGregor continued. “Do I think so? I think not. I’m in some shape at the minute, and I tell you this now, I am coming to put on a masterpiece, so I’m excited about it.’
