Poirier stopped The Notorious in the second round in January to avenge his 2014 KO loss.

McGregor was adamant the defeat was a minor setback as he chases more world titles.

And ever since that shock loss, the 32-year-old has been hitting the weights and fine-tuning his boxing skills.

McGregor, 32, has uploaded a clip of him working the punchbag, and also some photos showing his ripped physique.

He captioned them: "I’m ready to run thru a building. See you soon, god bless ya."

McGregor has already spoken about how driven he is to put his shock defeat behind him and get the win to put him back into the lightweight title frame.

He told Fox Sports: "All the marbles are on the line.

"I'm here training very, very hard. I'm about to go for my second session of the day. I'm in great condition already.


"I beat him in the original bout [in 2014]. I lost in the rematch. And then we've got trilogy, I've got a few little adjustments to make.

"I feel very, very confident. I'm very focused and driven.

"And I'll go in there and put on one hell of a performance and get it back on July 10th."

However Poirier's coach Dyah Davis believes The Diamond will land another knockout victory when they meet again.

He said: "I take this approach as if a lumberjack, we’re in a forest.

“The idea is to chop the tree down from the bottom and that’s exactly what we did. It’s a fight.

"So we look for any weaknesses that we could take advantage of and that was one of them.

"So we capitalised and we moved on from there and ended up finishing him with strikes.”
