Conor McGregor is one of the most famous names in the UFC, the bad boy of the sport. As such, there are plenty of UFC fans and sports betting fans looking forward to the upcoming bout against Dustin Poirier on the 23rd January 2021. These two have quite the history and the fight is definitely well anticipated by all. However, most major sports betting such as Sportsbet, will have McGregor as the favourite by quite a margin.
The fight, which will take place in Abu Dhabi this month, sees these two old rivals ready to settle old scores. The last time they went toe to toe, McGregor stopped Poirier in the first round. But, this was six years ago and nothing is the same. McGregor’s star rose in the sport. He became the first UFC fighter to hold world titles in two different divisions at the same time. However, Poirier also saw some success, beating names such as Eddie Alvarez, Dan Hooker, Max Holloway and Justin Gaethje, and earning himself the interim UFC lightweight title.
