Tyson Fury makes predictions for Conor McGregor trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier as he backs ‘The Notorious’ despite concerns over his ‘rockstar’ lifestyle
Tyson Fury has backed Conor McGregor to get revenge on Dustin Poirier when they meet in their trilogy fight next month.
The pair met for the third time at UFC 264 on July 10, six months after Poirier inflicted the first knockout loss of McGregor’s MMA career.
Fury has his own trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder scheduled for two weeks later on July 24.
The WBC heavyweight champion said BT Sport: “Well, this is Conor McGregor’s last roll of the dice.
“If he loses this one, it’s the curtains, isn’t it?”
“I think he wins this fight, I think he wins it in style too to be fair.”
The “Gypsy King” then raised concerns about McGregor’s lifestyle, with UFC boss Dana White previously referring to Rocky III when talking about him, although Fury stuck to his prediction. .
He continued, “With Conor you never know what he’s doing. You never know what he’s done in training camps and stuff.
“From what I hear, he’s living like a rockstar when he’s a week away from his fights.
” You can not do this. When I am at training camp, I am 100% dedicated to combat.
“I don’t do anything, I go to bed early, I get up early, I only drink water. I am 100% dedicated to the job at hand.
“If I went out to get run over the night before a fight, then I ask to lose.”
McGregor said Fox sports this week: “I train here very, very hard. I’m about to go for my second session of the day. I am already in very good condition.
“I beat him in the original fight [in 2014]. I lost in the rematch. And then we have the trilogy, I have a few small adjustments to make.
“I feel very, very confident. I am very focused and motivated.
“And I’m going to go and do a hell of a performance and get it back on July 10th.”
