Why Poirier Beats McGregor

I believe Dustin Poirier beats Conor McGregor in a rematch. Of course, you likely want to hear my reasons for picking the underdog in this fight, and I’m happy to explain further.

First of all, I believe that “The Diamond” has significantly improved as a fighter since losing to McGregor back in 2014. After the loss to the man who would eventually win the 145-pound title, Poirier returned to 155-pounds, where he has put together an impressive record of 10-2-1 (No Contest).

An extremely disappointing knockout loss to Michael Johnson in September 2016 preceded a submission defeat to all-time great Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2019. He has looked exceptionally good in the majority of his wins and thoroughly deserves to be regarded among the very best at 155-pounds.

McGregor has fought just twice in the UFC since adding the lightweight title to his featherweight strap against Eddie Alvarez in November 2016. A one-sided loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018 preceded a one-sided, 40-second TKO of Donald Cerrone in January 2020.

There is little evidence to suggest any considerable improvement in McGregor’s game over the past few years. A lot of this has to do with the fact that we haven’t seen a lot of The Notorious in that timeframe.

If his flat, uninspired performance against Khabib is anything to go by, Poirier will beat him with ease. However, if he can come out of the blocks as he did against Cerrone, he might surprise a lot of people.

Ultimately, it is hard to pick McGregor over a guy that has been as consistently impressive as Poirier, especially as the American’s odds are currently set at +180.

Will my opinion change closer to the fight? Check back soon, and you’ll find out.
