“I don’t like the guy, I don’t like him as a person. I think he talks a big game, like he wants to fight, and that he wants to be in the dog fight. He talks like he’s that kind of person.

“But if you watch his footage I don’t think he is. He’s knocked guys out, but he’s more of a point-fighter. He wants to throw stuff and look pretty and be unorthodox and circle. He doesn’t want to fight. So I’m going to bring the fight to him. I’m going to stay in his face. I have ultimate confidence in my skills on the feet and on the ground, so I feel like I can finish him anywhere it goes. I’m just going to get in there and be the bully. He tries to bully guys [outside the cage]; we’ll see how he handles it when it happens to him [inside].”

This weekend, Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will finally get a chance to settle their differences inside the Octagon.

Who takes it?
