What have they said?
John Kavanagh, McGregor's coach: "We’ve gotta figure out these fricking calf kicks, how to use them and defend them.
"We’re pretty confident we have that sorted out now.
"I think he looked excellent everywhere else so give us a rematch and we have the rematch, I feel.”
Dustin Poirier: ""It's fighting, man.
"I don't think you ever really have [someone's number].
"He'll make adjustments and it'll be a completely different fight.
"Like the first one and the second was different, the third one is gonna be different as well."
"I'm gonna make adjustments as well.
"I've gotta switch it up, keep things fresh and keep him guessing."

Hello everyone and welcome to SunSport's live coverage of UFC 264 – Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 3!
That's right… 3! The trilogy. These two have been mixing it with each other for years now and tonight their rivalry will finally come to an end.
McGregor bagged the first win via 1st-round TKO back in 2014, when the Notorious was still rising through the ranks.
Poirier and McGregor went their separate ways, the latter won two world titles in two different weight divisions, and the pair of them took losses to Khabib Nurmagomedov too.
But earlier this year they met once again.
This time, Poirier came away with his hand raised as he took McGregor out in two rounds on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.
And now here we are, back in Las Vegas in front of a full-capacity crowd for McGregor vs Poirier 3.
So strap yourselves in, it'll be a wild one, and we've got you covered the whole way.
