UFC superstar Conor McGregor believes Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier will deliver memorable action when the two lightweights collide at UFC 230 on Nov. 3 live on PPV from New York City.
One fighter taking special notice is McGregor himself, who holds victories over both fighters. During an appearance at UFC 229’s press conference earlier this week in New York City (full replay here), McGregor took a minute to discuss UFC 230’s co-main event.
“I think it’s gonna be a great fight. Two amazing fighters,” said McGregor (shown above). “Nate Diaz [is] as tough as they come. Dustin Poirier took that loss [to me] on the chin and came back and has showcased a good mental strength and has had some great, phenomenal fights and wins inside the Octagon.
