UFC 264 is almost here. The marquee PPV event of the summer is just days away as Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier put in their final preparations for the main event on Saturday night inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. 

But before they meet in the Octagon, the two fighters will hold court at a press conference inside the arena with fans in attendance. It will be the first time the two fighters have been in close proximity since Poirier scored the shocking second-round TKO of McGregor in January. Now, the two prepare to settle the score, but both will tick up the mind games with verbal taunts and jabs on Thursday evening.

McGregor has upped the ante already with his antics by calling Poirier a corpse and dead body in his lone interviews ahead of the fight as he tries to conjure the "Mystic Mac" persona that helped in his rise to fame. Poirier, to his credit, has not taken the bait at all as he remains calm and collected ahead of the trilogy.
