It will have been well over a year since we’ve seen Conor McGregor in a UFC fight when he enters the octagon to face Dustin Poirier tonight. All eyes will be Conor McGregor in what will be only his second UFC fight since December 2016. His last fight, on January 18, 2020, ended with a first-round TKO over Donald Cerrone and many are predicting a similar outcome for his opponent Dustin Poirier tonight.
It’s hard for us to know exactly what to expect from McGregor tonight, but the sportsbooks are aligned by making him the strong betting favorite. You can currently bet on McGregor at best odds of -305, that’s a 75.3% implied percentage, whereas Dustin Poirier can be backed at odds of +265.
Bettors seem to agree that he’s likely to dominate tonight as he’s been backed almost exclusively in the past 24 hours. Earlier in the week we reported that bettors could barely split the fighters in the main event tonight, but that’s changed in a big way as we get closer to the fight. In the past day, Conor McGregor has taken up 82% of bets in the betting market, whereas Poirier has seen just 18% of the action. Expect the odds on McGregor to continue to shorten as we get closer the fight tonight.
