Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier are about to close out their trilogy of fights, but who is most likely to win their third encounter?

McGregor vs Poirier III is capturing the focus of the MMA world and Notorious was going into the event with a lot of momentum under him. He is always making buzz and his name is guaranteed money on any bill. Now it seems the favorable odds might be coming to an end.

ESPN spoke to SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas and John Murray, executive director at SuperBook, said that fans were betting on Poirier in droves. That shifted the betting odds to see him win with -130 odds.

Conor McGregor is currently sitting as an underdog, but it was also noted that a lot of fans are putting more money on McGregor as the fight draws closer. That could eventually shift the odds again.


Betting odds don’t really mean anything when it comes to how a fight will turn out. McGregor was supposed to beat Poirier as a -333 favorite the last time they fought. That fight ended with Conor KOed in an image that Jake Paul recently dropped $100k to get immortalized as high-end custom jewelry.
