I was shocked to see Poirier is nearly 3:1 dog in this fight. I dont like the idea of betting against McG but I really feel like Poirier has at least a 50/50 chance. 

Great Co-main too. 

I dunno if I'd pay $75 for it tho. Thankful the pub is showing it

Fuck. So oddsmakers gave Cerrone a better chance to win than they are with Dustin. Cowboy was around +220, Poirier is +278 on my sports book right now. Am I missing something???? 

Conor will destroy Dustin again tonight and make it look easy. His striking is next level and the oddsmakers know this.

I'm at a bit of a crossroads here. I learned a long time ago to not bet against Conor, but I've been betting Poirier to win for years.  


His striking IS next level you are right. And Dustin gets hit in all of his fights, although he has never really been rocked at LW (other than the illegal Alvarez knee). Such an interesting fight, I might be best served to just sit back and enjoy.

I was just rewatching the first fight on YouTube. Instead of watching McGregor watch Porier for the last 30 sec. he gets rocked then shakes the cobwebs off and he has this look of bewilderment, and then McGregor says something to him and lays him out. Conor is surgical with that left. 
   Porier though has evolved so much. 60/40 leaning towards Conor. IMO

The undergroundfeed is wrong on start times almost every card juice. It’s a fair question and how skinny is your wiener?

Haven't tuned into fights in a while and wouldn't pay $70+ for this card but may head up to the bar and catch them.

Haven't followed UFC closely the last few years and haven't followed Poirrer's latest run, does he have a legitimate shot or is this a nice set up to get Conor a win

You’re giving the troll too much credit. Please ask your mom she’ll give you the run down son!

Hey, don't forget what makes this PPV worth every penny: If one of the guys does something "special" Khabib might think about coming back!

No, really, it's true. Dana said so! These guys are (maybe) fighting for a chance to (maybe) fight Khabib! Yes, I know he's already choked out one of them and neck cranked another and one of them got KO'd by Bellator's champ... but still, Khabib might Khome back! 

Bonus: Some of the chicks might be just 1 or 2 wins away from fighting for a belt!

Poirier is on a great run. Beat Max Holloway last yr. he’s had a couple setbacks but he’s top 5. Def in his prime.

Wouldn’t be surprised if Conor beats him worse this time. Hope it’s a good fight though. But doubt it.

I think its somewhat less than 50/50, especially to a guy who ko'd him. Standup Conner has a distinct advantage, grappling is close [no idea has the advantage] toughness, cardio, durability go to Dustin. Both of these guys were easily dispatched by Kabib, Porier probably worse. Poriers a live dog but the odds are probably accurate.

IF Conor's standup is miles ahead of Porier it will be a short fight. Probably like the Alverez fight. If Porier has improved enough to defend the onslaught he could wear Conor down if he can survive the first three rounds.

Michael Johnson knocked Dustin out @ LW.
