He Caption for snaps “190lbs pure granite” as he confirmed that he is currently 35lbs heavier than when he weighed in his last fight just five months ago.

Poirier beat McGregor at light (155lbs) back in July after the Irishman suffered a horrific broken leg at the end of the first half.

“He might want to slow down the Black Forge, whatever he’s going on.”

McGregor has won just one UFC fight since becoming a second-weight world champion in 2016.

He suffered two defeats against Poirier and was also defeated by Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.

In contrast, Poirier has built a significant amount of momentum since his loss to Khabib in September 2019.

After a unanimous decision victory over Dan Hooker, he went on to be two wins over McGregor to establish himself as one of the best lightweight athletes in the world.

But he now aims to beat Oliveira and eventually win his first world title at the age of 32.
