Dustin Poirier

The American has had a good spell after being defeated by McGregor in 2014. He won seven of nine fights, lost one time and ended one fight without a decision on the winner. Poirier's good form and Khabib Nurmagomedov's departure from the UFC allowed Brilliant to climb to the top of the rating of this organization.

His overall track record is 19 wins and four losses. He also feels good on the ground, but prefers to spend most of the fight in a standing position. In January this year, he defeated the Irishman and after that did not participate in fights.

Conor McGregor

The "notorious" spent less time in the octagon, but his aggressiveness remained with him. He has participated in six fights since the beginning of 2016 and was able to win three victories in them. However, his seven "Performance of the Night" awards in the previous eight successful confrontations, as well as a striking knockout in the first meeting with Porier, indicate that Conor's strength and power have not gone anywhere.

The Irishman's UFC record includes 10 wins and three losses. His signature style is a powerful start and thrust throughout the fight. Good striking technique and many years of experience will help McGregor in his third confrontation with the American.

Prediction

A seasoned fighter, McGregor learned his lesson from the January defeat when lashing kicks from an opponent threw him off the beat and caused the loss. With an advantage in the range of hands, McGregor can choose more flexible tactics for this meeting.

The Irishman had a good preparation for the fight, his coaching staff pointed out to him the strengths and weaknesses of the enemy. Do not forget that McGregor is used to quickly deciding the fate of the confrontation in his favor. Most likely, he will try to prove that he is still number one in the world of mixed martial arts and will try to knock out Poirier in the opening rounds.

The prediction is an early victory for McGregor. In bookmaker 1xBet such an outcome is offered with a coefficient of 2.40.
