It’s fight week! Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will run it back with a trilogy fight this Saturday (July 10th) that will headline UFC 264 in Las Vegas.
Conor McGregor won the original fight between the pair back in 2014 with a first round TKO in a featherweight fight. Dustin Poirier earned his revenge with a TKO victory of his own this past January.
McGregor has only won 1 fight in the UFC since winning the lightweight belt to become a double UFC champion back in 2016. That win was over an aging Cowboy Cerrone, who has now not won in his last 6 trips to the octagon. With no significant wins in almost 5 years it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of question marks still surrounding McGregor heading into this fight.
Dustin Poirier, on the other hand, has won 6 of his last 7 UFC fights, with the only loss coming to Khabib Nurmagomedov in a title fight back in 2019. The other 6 wins have all been over top quality competition and many people consider Poirier the top fighter in the lightweight division now that Khabib has retired. Poirier could have fought for the UFC title after his win over McGregor, but instead decided to go for the trilogy money fight.
McGregor is still the biggest draw in the UFC, but he will go into this fight as a slight underdog with Dustin Poirier having much more recent success in the UFC. There are significant question marks surrounding McGregor and people are going to tune in to see if he can avenge the January loss to Poirier. I expect UFC 264 to be yet another monster Conor McGregor event both in terms of PPV buys and betting handle.

I’m personally betting on Conor McGregor to win the trilogy fight as a slight underdog. I think Conor will have learned from the previous fight and come in with a good game plan to defend the leg kicks, while landing his own offense. I think Conor has more weapons to potentially catch Poirier early and finish this fight. The longer the fight goes the more it favours Poirier, but I also think Conor has the ability to dig deep and fight smart late if he turns out he needs to win 3 of the 5 rounds.
