Conor McGregor’s sparring partner Dylan Moran tells Jake Paul he has ‘p***** off the wrong Irish guy’ and warns Dustin Poirier about Irishman’s power

Conor McGregor’s sparring partner does not believe Dustin Poirier will make it out of the first round in the main event of UFC 257.
Dylan Moran is currently in Dubai helping ‘The Notorious’ for his highly-anticipated return to the octagon after a year away.

The Waterford welterweight has amassed a 15-1 record in his professional career and managed to secure three wins in 2020.
Given his slick skill set and southpaw stance, McGregor was quick to recruit the 26-year-old into his camp to prepare for the rematch with Poirier – the man he stopped in one round in 2014.
For all his achievements in the ring, being called ‘a phenomenally exciting talent’ by a fighter as accomplished and skilled as McGregor on social media has thrust Moran into the limelight by raising his profile.
‘The Real Deal’ comes from a family of boxers and only really became intrigued by MMA because of McGregor’s rise to the top. Having had the chance to now spar the Irishman, Moran fully understands the hype.

“The power is for real,” he told “Look at his performances, look at what he has done in the octagon when it matters.
“The power is there, you don’t need me to tell you. Although I can testify to it also, the power is for real because I have felt it!
“Look what he has done to Jose Aldo, look at what he has done to all them guys. That doesn’t happen without the power being real.”
McGregor has posted several pictures on social media looking ripped and ready for the clash, also promising to end the contest in 60 seconds on Fight Island.

Moran, who boasts six knockouts himself from his 15 wins, believes Poirier is a champion inside and outside of the ring.
However, he cannot see a way for ‘The Diamond’ to last against his compatriot.
“So firstly, I think Dustin is a great guy as a person. Obviously when I was brought in for the sparring I had to spar like Dustin so I have watched a lot of him.
“He’s a great fighter in and out of the ring and I really like what he does out of the ring and how he carries himself.

“He is a tough guy and I think January 23 is going to be very exciting, Dustin will give it a good go, but I don’t think it is going to be good enough.
“Having watched him, I made a few little adjustments and I got the sparring bang on; pushing forward, kind of square on throwing shots.
“I can testify that them shots that Conor throws, Dustin is tailor-made for them and Conor is going to land them early and make it a quick night’s work.”
While Moran’s foray into the McGregor camp was met with celebrations amongst the Irish boxing community, it seemed as though one man was not best pleased.

YouTube boxer Jake Paul, who has seemingly tried every trick in the book to get the 32-year-old’s attention, released a video on social media mocking both McGregor and Moran.
But the Irishman was not afraid to send a message back to the outspoken American.
“Jake, you have p***** off the wrong Irish guy,” he added. “I’m caught up at the moment training for a real fight with a real fighter.
“But it isn’t over; it might die down on social media, but you’re going to see me sooner rather than later.
“You’ll have to back it up. Put up, or shut up – it is that simple.”
