Conor McGregor looks in frightening shape ahead of UFC 264 as he bids for revenge in Dustin Poirier trilogy fight

CONOR MCGREGOR looks to be in tremendous nick ahead of his blockbuster trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

The Notorious is in the final stages of preparation for his July 10 rubber match with the former interim lightweight champion, which will headline UFC 264 in Las Vegas.



McGregor has been hard at work in the gym ahead of the Sin City series decider and looks to be in peak physical condition.

On Monday evening, the Irishman posted a photo of himself having his straps checked to Instagram.

The former featherweight's biceps and quads were bulging at the seams and the veins on his shoulders were clear to see.

The Dubliner's legion of fans were quick to comment on his physique, with one saying: "You look good king!"

Another said: "Looking war ready."

And another said: "The king is back."

One remarked: "King of the jungle."

McGregor, 32, suffered a brutal second-round KO defeat to Poirier in their January rematch in Abu Dhabi.

And the pride of Dublin plans is relishing the opportunity to exact revenge on his old 145lb rival.

He said: “I lost that night, it stung. And I must get that back.

“Now I have an opportunity to get my revenge.”

The UFC's first simultaneous two-weight world champion hasn't tasted victory at lightweight since November 2016 and plans to end his winless run in spectacular fashion.

He said: “I’m in great condition already. I beat him in the original bout [in 2014]. I lost in the rematch.

“And then we’ve got trilogy, I’ve got a few little adjustments to make.

“I feel very, very confident. I’m very focused and driven.

“And I’ll go in there and put on one hell of a performance and get it back on July 10.”
