There was an interesting detail in the latest social media posts by Conor McGregor.
McGregor gets set to take on Dustin Poirier in a lightweight trilogy match when they headline the upcoming UFC 264 pay-per-view event taking place July 10.
With just a few weeks to go for the event, McGregor recently shared images of himself attending the wedding of his good friend and trusted advisor Matthew Gilbert-Hammerling.
But what was more interesting was the fact that the Irishman appeared to be sporting a black eye.

What does this mean? Not much in the grand scheme of things.
Black eyes are extremely common in combat sports and it either means McGregor was caught with a good shot or is taking his fight with Poirier extremely seriously depending on how you look at it.
“July 10th I will do this absolutely flawlessly. We have these clowns sussed and fully! ” McGregor wrote last month on social media. “They wanna play a game of tactics? No problem, see you in there. You’ve awoken a beast. A beast with the backing of a much higher power! Say your prayers.”
Poirier defeated McGregor in their UFC 257 rematch in January after delivering a second-round knockout.
