Conor McGregor Vs. Dustin Poitier: Odds
Given that it is a rematch and the Mystic Mac stood tall in the last meeting, therefore the odds are in favor of Conor McGregor. However, since that fight, which took place in 2014, Dustin Poitier has built an impressive resume and he is currently the No.2 Lightweight in UFC.
So, as the fighters are in isolation, training to bring out their A-game, at this point only conjectures can be drawn about the ultimate result. Though the odds and conjectures will not matter on the day as the unsaid rule of the sport states, on the day the fighter who makes better adjustments eventually prevails.
When it comes to it being a title fight, the match may or may not give a titleholder but it is still a high stake fight and if not for the gold then it will certainly bring out the new no.1 contender.
