Conor McGregor was defeated by Dustin Poirier in their second fight back in January, and after that bout, the Irishman said that he lost because of inactivity. Surely being away from real competition for 12 months was not an advantage for him, and he said that he would take him on again after a period of more intense training.

Not much has changed since, to be fair, as this will be his first fight since the defeat, so it is difficult to expect a different outcome. However, maybe a better strategy would have been to test himself first with a lesser opposition to recover confidence and form. Poirier controlled McGregor well last time and can do it again. It will be difficult to imagine what excuse McGregor will come up, but another defeat will likely send him to retirement once again, with the difference that this time he will stick to it.

Who will win Dustin Poirier v Conor McGregor 3 fight?
When Conor McGregor managed to knock out Dustin Poirier in the first round at UFC 178 in 2014, not many would have expected to see those two sharing an Octagon another two times. The Irishman hammered the American in their first bout, and after that, he also defeated Jose Aldo and Eddie Alvarez. Since the UFC lightweight belt title, McGregor has fought three times in UFC, as he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in 2018, and then defeated Donald Cerrone in the first round.
When he took on Poirier back in January, the Irishman couldn’t close the matter in the first round, and the American made him pay in the second. Another win over McGregor will see his profile rise considerably and he might be getting close to challenging Charles Oliveira for the lightweight title.
