Dustin Proirier different since McGregor

    Before, he looked like he was allowing Conor too much into his head, causing him being too anxious about his performance against Conor. But after it ended in such a fashion that it did, he looks more matured and concentrated, more calm. His past two fights he looked more recklessly daring, like a man believing in his ability with no regard of his opponent save the movements he looks to overcome. His eyes made a big impression in those fights, I felt his assured presence. If this goes on, I have no doubt he will take that belt and avenge that loss(considering if someone will move a weighclass and have can diet ready).

    Lol. Of course he looks more confident now. He already fought the GOAT. Everything else is downhill from that.

    Nothing is worse than talking all that shit and getting taken out in two minutes.

    He's always been reckless, it's why he gets caught so much.

    He will never hold a belt in the UFC.

    He went up a weight class and isn't screwing his body up anymore.

    McGregor's game plan is to frustrate his opponents before they step into the octagon. If you fight emotionally, you wont fight well. Dustin was too emotional in the octagon and wanted to swing for the fences to ko connor. He is happy now b/c 1. he dosent have to cut a huge amount of weight. 2. He learned not to get too emotional before/during the fight.

    I don't know about him avenging the loss or getting the belt..don't get ahead of yourself there buddy.

    Both Holloway and Poirier look like different beasts since fighting McGregor.

    He looked faster and more fluid at 145

    They can't move over. Econoreem, Healthy Shogun and Limp Dick Andy are in the way.

    All of Poirier's losses at 145 were to contenders. When he fought mid-level guys, he generally dispatched them with ease. So far, he's run through two mid-level 55ers. Let's see him against the upper echelon first.
