Daniel Cormier Explains What Dustin Poirier Must Convince Himself Heading Into McGregor Rematch

“I think when you lose a fight and you go into another fight [with the same person]… I know all about it, I fought ‘Rumble’ [Anthony Johnson] twice, I fought Jon Jones twice, I fought Stipe [Miocic] three times. I fought seven of my 25 fights against three dudes,” Cormier said in a recent interview with SCMP (h/t BJPenn.com). “So I think any fighter can convince himself he just got caught, and that’s what Dustin is gonna have to rely on in order to give himself a chance. It’s difficult to forget, but you wanna remember it and use it to motivate you in the rematch.”
