Conor McGregor is getting under the skin of Dustin Poirier ahead of their mouthwatering clash at UFC178 in Las Vegas this Saturday.

Both fighters weighed-in in front of UFC Officials yesterday and when they met in the hotel lobby, you could cut the tension with the knife.

McGregor, sporting a very flashy pair of sunglasses, immediately began staring down his opponent causing the unimpressed American to leave the room.

"I've never dislike a guy as much that i ever fought," Poirier said as he left the hotel.

"There's a time to be professional. In the lobby with your crew there, f**king jack**s, he's new to this game but he'll learn, he'll learn."

UFC178 kicks off at 3am Irish time on Sunday morning with delayed coverage of the fight being shown on 3e on Monday at 9pm.
