On Wednesday, McGregor told ESPN that he is ready for his fight this time around, which will take place at T-Mobile Arena.

“I’m coming in to kill this man,” McGregor said. “I’m coming in with vicious intent here. Mortar shots. What else can I say? That’s the way it is. 

“I’m looking to take this man out cold.”

McGregor stated that a fight against Pacquiao was expected to happen this past spring, but since he suffered a second-round TKO loss to Poirier, he decided to change plans. McGregor explained that he only gave Poirier a second opportunity because “he pitied the man.”

“I was looking past him,” McGregor said. “I had a Manny Pacquiao camp in place.”
