When further asked upon by Megan Olivi about the round in which he predicted that he would submit McGregor, Poirier replied that he usually does not make predictions.

He once against added that he had a feeling he would submit McGregor:

“I have no clue, I don’t even like to make predictions and stuff like that and usually I don’t have stuff come to my head like I’m going to knock this guy out, I’m just going to win by any means, that’s my goal in every fight. But, I just have a feeling I might submit him.”

Dustin Poirier is currently ranked number 1 in the lightweight division. He did have a really good chance to fight for the lightweight title at UFC 262, instead, he opted to fight McGregor, to settle the rivalry and chase greatness.

A win here, would guarantee him a shot at the lightweight title.
