Former foe Dustin Poirier is the man who will be waiting in the opposite corner on January 23 armed with dreams of avenging his 2014 defeat against ‘The Notorious’.

CONOR MCGREGOR returns to the Octogan this weekend as Notorious heads up a packed UFC 257 card.
In his way is the American Dustin Poirer, also 32, in a rematch of their 2014 clash which McGregor won by first round TKO at UFC 178.
What have they said?
McGregor: “Back on the horse! Time zone adjusting. Weight scale calculating. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. No chance! I am preparing a masterpiece!”
Poirier: “I feel like Khabib’s a guy of his word. If he says he’s retired, he’s most likely retired.
“Number two is Gaethje, I got a win over him. I feel like me and Conor could potentially be for the belt.
I’m a former interim champion looking to get some gold back around my waist.
Conor is a former undisputed world champion in the lightweight division.
Both of our last defeats were to the current/’retired’ world champion. So I don’t know.”
Colby Covington, former team-mate of Poirier’s: “All I gotta say guys is make sure you guys got the Kleenex ready at the press conference.
Cause you know Dustin Sore-ier is going to break down on the mic.
He’s gonna cry to the world, get everyone to feel sympathy and feel bad for him. He’s going to get sparked again in the first round ’cause he’s completely washed up and has no chin anymore and no heart.
It’s not going to be competitive. I think Conor’s just going to spark him in the first round.
