Conor McGregor Vs. Dustin Poirier 2
Conor McGregor Vs. Dustin Poirier is a much-anticipated fight. It is the repeat of the 2014 showdown which took place at UFC 178. Back then it was a Featherweight encounter and now it’s under the column of Lightweight.
While Conor McGregor proved to be the superior athlete in the pair’s previous meeting, much has changed since then. Over the years Dustin Poirier has apparently transformed his attitude towards the sport, and himself has stated a number of times that, it is all business for him now. Therefore, the Diamond that was sparkling with rage in 2014, may showcase his calm side this time against the opponent, who is the master of bringing out an unusual reaction from his adversaries.

It is going to be a favorable situation for UFC as well, as McGregor’s presence evidently contributes to the numbers that later change into $ sign.
So, with that being the case let’s hope the win-win narrative continues and the relentless pandemic stays away from this fight, and from every other future fixture.
