otorious will take on the American for the third time at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, this weekend with both men having scored a win over the other.

Ahead of the fight, McGregor told a press conference: “I’m going to go through his head, put holes in him and take it off his shoulders, that’s the goal here.
“He’s done here, this is it for him, this is the end of the road.
“It’s on, Saturday night he’s getting walked around that octagon like a dog and put to sleep.”

Jake Paul also posted a picture taunting McGregor about his knockout loss to Poirier.

Jake Paul, meanwhile, has won all three of his pro boxing matches via knockout and will next face former UFC champion Tyron Woodley on August 28.
