Dustin Poirier knocked out Conor McGregor in their initial rematch, which took put in January. His deadly calf kicks primarily incapacitated McGregor, before he shut in for the TKO stoppage.


Dan Hooker believes McGregor have to make changes

Dan Hooker believes that Conor McGregor have to rectify the faults and vulnerabilities that led to Poirier finishing him in these types of emphatic manner.

Speaking with Sportskeeda MMA’s John Hyon Ko, Hooker said-

“Conor McGregor’s the man that has to make the adjustments. Poirier type of figured him out with that minimal calf kick. Weathering that early storm, surviving that early storm and then coming with that small calf kick. It’s like Conor McGregor requires to make the adjustment.”

Even so, with the trilogy struggle taking position only six months right after their original rematch, Dan Hooker does not think the Irishman has experienced enough time to make the essential variations to his match-

“I just you should not assume that that is enough time to make the adjustment,” said Hooker. “Like soon after he obtained knocked out he would’ve experienced to have a truthful bit of time off… I just never truly feel like he’s experienced that a lot time in the health and fitness center to make the needed changes.”

Dan Hooker claims that whilst it may perhaps appear that all McGregor has to do is increase his calf kick protection, that is not the circumstance.

To be ready to totally defend himself from the debilatating strikes, McGregor will have to alter his entire stance, no smaller feat in the offered time. Dan Hooker told Sportskeeda-

“It is not as uncomplicated as ‘aw I’ll just decide my leg up and convert.’ He’s got to regulate his complete stance. I would say changing your stance is the most difficult matter a fighter can do. You can decide up new techniques, but changing your stance. Conor McGregor has normally been southpaw, he is always been like super facet on and always has his still left hand super minimal.”

Eventually, Dan Hooker backed Poirier to pick up a second victory more than McGregor.

“So just since of the time constraints, I you should not see that combat enjoying out any different.”
