Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor aren’t expected to fight again for a few months yet. But, the lightweight stars are already trading verbal shots ahead of their trilogy fight.

The accomplished fighters are expected to fight for a third time on July 10th, at UFC 264. The bout has been booked following Poirier’s (27-6) stoppage win over McGregor (22-5) this past January, which avenged his 2014 loss to the former champ.

In the rematch, Poirier punished McGregor’s lead leg with calf kicks, before finishing him with punches in round two. Following the loss, McGregor reported that the kicks had played an integral role in Poirier’s win.

After McGregor recently reflected on how he trained as he was becoming a star, the two had the following exchange on Twitter.

The location for UFC 264 has yet to be determined.
