It doesnt make sense to me. I think hes doing it to make himself believe in himself. I dont know, some guys might need that.

Im looking forward to Saturday the 27th when I get to put my hands on him.Fridays weigh-in offered another taste of the mayhem to come with McGregor, who came on stage first, edging toward the scales as Poirier stepped on them.
