UFC 264 Fight Card, Predictions, Odds
UFC 264 marks the third time that McGregor and Poirier have faced off in the octagon, with both men picking up a victory apiece.
McGregor took down Poirier at UFC 178 way back in 2014, but Poirier rebounded to knock out “Notorious” this past January. Now, Poirier (27-6 MMA, 19-5 UFC) and McGregor (22-5 MMA, 10-3 UFC) meet in the definitive rubber match to close out the biggest UFC card of the year so far.
Vegas oddsmakers have both men pretty evenly matched, though odds appear to favor Poirier for the trilogy win.
The main card also features a couple of other intriguing matchups, with the always-dangerous Gilbert Burns taking on Stephen Thompson in a welterweight bout. Australian Tai Tulvasa takes on Greg Hardy in a heavyweight bout, while the always colorful Sean O’Malley faces off in the octagon again Kris Moutinho in a bantemweight fight.
The women’s main card at UFC 264 features Irene Aldana vs. Yana Kunitskaya in a bantemweight bout.
