Some of the biggest names in MMA history have made their predictions in line with tonight’s UFC event, which sees the long-awaited trilogy fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.
It’s undoubtedly one of the biggest fights of the year so far not only in terms of mixed martial-arts but combat sports in general, and with each fighter now claiming a prestigious victory over each other, they can’t wait to get down and dirty tonight and find out who truly is the better athlete.
Poirier no doubt has the advantage of momentum on his side, having won the last bout between the two – however, you can’t ever count out the Notorious One shocking the world, as he has done so many times before over stiff competition.
Huge fights like this often draw plenty of attention, and everyone and their dog has had their say on who will reign victorious when the dust settles tonight.
