Going into the fight, legal sports betting sites have the odds set fairly even with Poirier slightly favored to take the win. That is due to the fact that both fighters each have one win under their belts against each other in similar TKO fashion.
Dustin Poirier Vs. Conor McGregor III
- Dustin Poirier -125
- Conor McGregor +105
Getting right into the UFC odds, Poirier is the favorite being that he is the most recent winner between the two. Also backing up his odds is that in his last five fights prior to beating McGregor, he defeated some notable names including Justin Gaethje, Eddie Alvarez, Max Holloway, and Dan Hooker – all of whom sit with over 20 wins a piece with 10 losses or less.
However, this is still “The Notorious” Conor McGregor.
Many believe that McGregor has lost a step in his career being that in his last two fights against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Poirier, he has not been his usual self in terms of how vocal he is.
McGregor is usually one to trash talk when he gets the chance which could certainly get in the heads of his opponents and make his fights personal. Fast track to now, it seems as if Conor has lit a spark under himself and has gone back to his trash talk approach to try and get in the head of Poirier.

With that said, money can certainly be made on both sides of the line, but if McGregor really is back to form, there is not much that anyone can do to stop him.
Poirier Vs. McGregor Round Total
One prop bet that bettors should familiarize themselves with is the round total for the fight which some might think is set too low.
McGregor Vs. Poirier Round Total
- Over 1.5 Rounds -185
- Under 1.5 Round +145
Despite the fact that the Under hit in their first two fights, bettors can expect a more conservative approach from both fighters being that this is the final matchup between the two. That said, the Over should be the way the money leans.
