Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 3 Preview
Dustin Poirier has passed at an opportunity for a shot at the UFC Lightweight Title in favour of a trilogy fight with the biggest draw card that the sport has ever seen and who blames him!
The winner of this fight will be assured a shot at Charles Oliveira next anyway I would assume.
Conor took the first fight way back in 2014 when both fighters were in their infancy in the promotion and Dustin levelled the score at one a piece just five months ago.
It really is an interesting fight to attempt to break down and there are many facets of MMA that favour both fighters but ultimately Conor McGregor will need to produce something different if he is to win this fight.
If he is going to rely on his excellent movement and counter punching as his main methods to victory, then he is again a punchers chance in the opening couple of rounds.
This is something that has worked for McGregor throughout his career and his gas tank has not been tested because of that brutal left hand.
But he has spent just 192 seconds inside the octagon in the past 26 months and unless he brings something new to the table, I see this one going the same way the last fight did or Poirier winning a decision.
