Poirier handed McGregor his only ever knockout defeat six months ago with a sensational performance at UFC 257, with the Notorious now in last chance saloon as he bids to regain his lightweight title.  

McGregor has won three of his last six UFC fights, having suffered defeats via submission to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz before his knockout loss to Poirier. He was also submitted by Joseph Duffy and Artemij Sitenkov at the start of his career.

Yet McGregor has sensationally maintained that his defeat to Poirier was the only time he has been truly beaten. 

Paul wants to be the next fighter to knock the Irishman out. Telling McGregor not to ‘fall asleep’ during his trilogy fight with Poirier as it could derail their potential bout.

Paul has been campaigning for a fight with the former two-weight world champion over the last year.  

He also offered McGregor $50million (£36m) to make his second pro boxing appearance. However, the MMA star is set to agree.   

Paul took aim at McGregor earlier this week, saying: ‘You can tell Conor has lost ‘it’.

‘He no longer speaks from a place of authenticity and you can tell he’s trying to convince himself of his own lies.

‘He takes offense to everything now. He’s bathing in his own insecurity’s [sic].

‘When we fight I will further expose him for the fraud he is.’
