I love it

This will be the test. Poirier is a legitimate top 5-7 Featherweight and he won't back down to Conor's hype machine. Very exciting match up

This is a good match up, poirier won't wilt like Brandao did. Still interested to see how mcgregor does on the ground against someone as good as poirier, he has some very sneaky chokes.

178 is stacked enough

177 is badly needing main card fights

In all honesty, I think that Poirier would run right through him.

Hope Poirier ends up victorious but we'll just have to wait and see. Will be an awesome fight regardless who wins.

McGregor makes easy work of Poirier. The big fights of Poirier's career he lost, and I don't see that changing.

Nothing about this fight will be easy for Conor.

Yeah I don't think this easy for Conor, and if you are referring to Poirier's fight with Swanson he has improved his stand up and striking defence heaps since that fight.

I would like to see how Conor handles some crazy scrambles with poirier on the ground and how he reacts in a war.

Would rather see him against the winner of Guida vs Bermudez, or Nick Lentz.

I disagree that Poirier is substatially better on the feet than he was even during the Holloway fight.

I think Mcgregor will hurt Poirier on the feet continuously like the Zombie did.
