John Kavanagh Says Dustin Poirier Is Fighting A Different Animal In Conor McGregor

John Kavanagh talks to Oscar Willis of TheMacLife ahead of Conor McGregor‘s rematch with Dustin Poirier.

“I think (Poirier) has definitely gotten better,” Kavanagh said. “There’s a few more takedown attempts now in his fights. I hadn’t seen it before – he has a good guillotine. We can see that. Then his volume and his conditioning is looking on point. You can see in his fights he has an ability to take a lot of punishment and still come forward. Pick any of last few fights to see that quality. However, he’s fighting a different animal than any of those guys: somebody with true, one-punch knockout power that he’s already felt.”

Conor McGregor against Dustin Poirier 2 has been confirmed by the UFC. The rematch has been finalised and will headline UFC 257 on 23rd January.
