At Thursday’s UFC 257 press conference in Abu Dhabi, MMA Junkie’s John Morgan asked the former two-division champion for comment on the lawsuits and whether it’s affecting his focus ahead of Saturday’s rematch vs. Dustin Poirier.
“You know, it’s old news,” McGregor said. “It was investigated thoroughly over the course of two long years, and I was cleared of any wrongdoing. And that’s it.”
“So much positivity in my life,” he continued. “I’ve got a great challenge ahead of me on Saturday night and I’m very excited to get in. I’ve put in an immense amount of work to get my frame correct at 155, to get my conditioning [right]—I want to answer questions here and I hope Dustin can bring it to me and we can have a good fight.”
