Any way a fight generally ends (Tko/Sub/Dec) is a realistic possibility for Poirier. If he can use his full range of skills I favor him. If he gets stuck in a kick boxing match only, then Mcgreg may be the favorite.

To me this is really just a pick'em fight

I am just not convinced that Poirier will be able to effectively wrestle Conor whilst avoiding damage. Dustin's defense is quite weak while Conor's offense is quite strong. Couple that with the speed disparity and therein lies the problem.

What?

Losing to Cub and KZ doesnt make you low skilled.

No, but Poirier is a bit like Chan Sung Jung-light.

I agree. He's a lot of hype but Dustin should definitely be the favorite. We'll see how he does against somebody decent

Connor is going to fuck him up regardless.

Stylistically, he should not be the favorite. However, if you were to base your opinion simply by looking at their relative ranking in the division, Poirier would potentially be the favorite.

Dustin has an ability to start winning when the cards are down. It's a good bet to go with him for the win...
