UFC 257: McGregor vs Poirier 2 odds – Betting prediction and fight preview

CONOR MCGREGOR will return to the UFC after a year out of the octagon for a rematch with Dustin Poirier.

The Notorious will take on his old American rival at UFC 257 after defeating Poirier in the first round of their showdown in 2014.


The bookmakers have McGregor as the favourite ahead of their fight on January 23rd.

The Irish star is priced at 4/11 to win with Paddy Power while Poirier is priced at just 2/1 to avenge his defeat from seven years ago.

The prices suggest the bookies are anticipating an even clash.

Both fighters boast astonishing records, with McGregor having won 22 fights with just four defeats, while Poirier has won 26 and lost six times.

Like McGregor, Poirier last tasted defeat against UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov, via submission.


McGregor has won 89 per cent of his fights (19) of his fights via knockout and his most likely method of victory is by KO/TKO at 8/13.

And you can back McGregor to win in the first round AGAIN against Poirier at 15/8 with Paddy Power.

While 12 of Poirier's victory have been via KO and he is priced at 9/2 to win via KO/TKO in Abu Dhabi.
