McGregor v Poirier 3: What has been said?

The two stars have engaged in social media talks in April, saying they are ready to ‘meet in the middle’ once again.

McGregor posted: “Double skills work. I also didn’t take rest days unless I absolutely had to. Not one. Not even a Sunday. 

“I will take this approach again for my comeback fight. I didn’t become UFC champ champ with this method but I did become UFC 145 champion. Also the cage warrior champ champ.”

Poirier then responded with: “I never slack, I’ll meet you in the middle of the octagon July 10th.”

And McGregor then answered: “Good to hear Dustin, I hope so. 

“As last time you backed up and shot inside the first 30 seconds. I’ll be in the middle from the very go if you want it. You know that. I’ll be ready for the tactics this time too tho. See you in there.”
