Former UFC featherweight and lightweight double-champion - Conor McGregor - is gearing up for the much-awaited trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. With both Conor and Dustin currently at one win each at UFC 178 and UFC 257 respectively (via knockouts), the stage is set for the ultimate decider which will be fought on July 10.
McGregor leaving no stones unturned for the trilogy fight
The Irish mixed martial artist recently shared a video on his social media account where he can be seen hurling punches in full swing. The fast hand-eye coordination and body posture was a treat to watch for the fans despite it being only a 15-second footage. The 32-year-old was seen practicing jab-cross combination on a heavy bag as he is leaving no stones unturned to win his first-ever fight in the lightweight division since 2016.
