Poirier holds an 11-2 record in the lightweight divison and I feel he totally dominated the rematch fight and will do the same here. McGregor’s last three fights were Khabib Nurmagomedov (loss – submission), Donald Cerrone (win – knockout) and Dustin Poirier (loss – knockout).
Will the real McGregor show up today? Even if he does I still think the more active fighter to date has been Poirier and he will take the third match up as well.
Prediction: Dustin Poirier (-110) via knockout
