Connor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 3 “The Man in the Arena” hype video released
McGregor and Poirier meet for the third, and presumably the final time, at UFC 264, which takes place on July 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. No one has had a more glamorous career in MMA than Connor McGregor.
The recent turbulence in his career has forced him to face Dustin Poirier for the third time. Connor McGregor’s victory against Dustin Poirier came during Connor’s heyday in the UFC when he was stacking knock-out wins and capturing belts in multiple weight divisions. Winning this fight is crucial for Connor because his reputation as the greatest fighter in MMA has been tarnished in recent memory. Having this match could be the difference between staying in the UFC or not.
With fight day coming closer, the promotion has released a hype video for the match asking who “the man in the arena” is. If you have guessed by the name, the video has the speech for acclaimed president Theodore Roosevelt which Dustin Poirier narrates. As the video says, the credit doesn’t count. The real champion is the man actually in the arena whose face is marred by sweat and blood. The credit belongs to the man who strives valiantly despite coming in short again and again.
The video then asks who has these worthy qualities as highlights of Connor McGregor and Dustin Poirier’s greatest fights in the background. Finally, the video ends by stating an inspiring message saying that who sees his triumph in high achievement or at worst fails, then at least he failed while daring greatly so that his place will never be among the timid souls that neither knows victory nor defeat. Indeed the third fight in Connor and Dustin’s trilogy is set to be huge.
Fans are eager to see the trajectory of Connor’s career after this match, so the pressure is on him to recapture his former glory. However, Dustin came out on top, so he will definitely be confident going into this fight. This match has the making of an absolute barn burner, and both fighters are set to make their mark, but only one will come on top.
