Dustin Poirier

Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor seems to have earned his reputation with his powerful left punches. McGregor is noted for his fierce fighting skills and any opponent in the ring would think twice before landing a punch. On the other hand, McGregor is yet to secure a knockout after the second round.
