IMO Brandao is a scarier fight than Poirier, for Mcgregor anyway.

When Connor calls out Aldo and Mendes, he's just working the hype. There was a reason Connor was calling out Dustin specifically as a main event over Miller. I think Connor sees wholes that hell be able to take advantage of and he probably sees him as the easiest of the top ranked guys. Id take Connor in the fight.

I like Poirier and I think he's a great fighter. However, I also think he's overrated (at least on Sherdog). His biggest win is against Erik Koch (don't get me wrong that is reasonably impressive) and he's 0-2 against top 10 fighters. He's also got rocked by pretty much everyone I've seen him fight. I just don't see why people think he's a world beater.

He's good everywhere but not truly great anywhere. I genuinely believe that McGregor has far superior standup and enough to avoid the sub. McGregor takes it IMO.

If he did read it, he got it right. No point in having Poirier hanging around there if he's not going to fight McGregor. This could be the defining fight of Poirier's career, even if he loses.

This is going to be a badass fight. I have been on the Dustin bandwagon every since I saw fightville, so it's going to be pretty exciting to see if he can derail the biggest hype train in sherdog history
