McGregor, Lobov’s longtime training partner and good friend, is set to face Poirier in the UFC 257 main event on Jan. 23, a rematch from over six years ago. In their first meeting in 2014, McGregor (22-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC) made quick work of Poirier, needing only one minute and 46 seconds to take him out.

But despite both fighters massively progressing since then, Lobov doesn’t see the rematch going any differently.

“I see this fight going exactly the same way,” Lobov told MMA Junkie Radio. “The reason being is everybody’s trying to make it out like Poirier wasn’t good before he fought Conor or something like that, like he’s changed so much. No, remember what Poirier was. He was the No. 5 featherweight in the world. He was destroying guys. You remember his fight with (Erik) Koch, who was a top 10 featherweight at the time. He stopped him. Brandao, this guy was an absolute killer. It’s just people don’t want to give Conor credit for destroying these guys.

a store front at night: Depends. If you’re expecting to see a competitive clash between two contender-level fighters, then don’t waste your money. That’s not what this is. It’s a glorified light sparring session between two once-great, but badly faded legends, nothing more. The exhibition won’t be scored and there will be no winner, at least officially. Retired boxers Christy Martin, Vinny Pazienza and Chad Dawson were hired by the WBC to score the fight just for fun. And the participants will wear 12-pounce gloves, which should soften whatever blows they end up landing. If you understand that, if you’re happy simply to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane, then, hey, $50 isn’t an outrageous fee. Knock yourself out, which is more than Tyson or Jones is likely to do to the other on Saturday night.  | For more great boxing coverage, head over to Boxing Junkie |

“Poirier was a killer back then, but just stylistically, his style matches up so well (for) Conor, that Conor will stop him again in the first round, and it’ll be no different than their first meeting. So Poirier was good before they fought the first time, just Conor was so good that he destroyed Poirier like that and then after that, Poirier went back to doing what he was doing before he fought Conor, dominating and being a very good fighter, so I don’t see anything changing this time around.”

Lobov, who’s gearing up for a fight of his own on Dec. 12 against Ylies Djiroun in France, hasn’t gotten an opportunity to help McGregor in his training camp yet but vows to be in his corner as always when the former two-division champion makes the walk against Poirier.
