Thoughts? (preferably genuine ones, and not exclusively GOAT jokey comments)
Poirier via 3rd d'arce

Toss up. Not sold on McGregor. For some reason, I don't trust Poirier's chin though. I feel like Poirier's the more well rounded fighter, but I see Conor catching and finishing him on the feet.

This would be a big fight and good headliner for both of them.
