    He's had one good win in the last four years, and you're acting like he's going to annihilate Poirier who has been beating killers and training his ass off all this time. All Conor has done in that time is snort cocaine, get drunk, and commit infidelity on his hot 35 year old wife.

    He annihilated Poirier the first time...in the first round. Conors boxing is far superior and pressure. Conors even improved since then, it’s not like he’s way past his prime, he just hasn’t been as active.

    You mean like only 5 years ago lol. You do realize Poirier was still a killer at that time, Conors even better now. Conor went straight in there and easily knocked him out.

    Poirier got way better since then, even Michael Johnson knocked out that Poirier.

    His 155 resume is way better than Conor's;
    -Poirier KOed Alvarez, Gaethje, Pettis.
    -Conor only KOed Alvarez.

    Poirier's cardio is tested and was very good against Dan Hooker and Holloway at 155.

    If Poirier is fully focused and prepared himself to survive the first two rounds with a good game plan and then tire Conor out, then I can see him winning. Poirier's cardio is very good, his boxing IQ is better than Nate's, his BJJ not bad on the ground, and his chin got better now.

    But if he is not mentally ready, we can always see another Cowboy v Conor 2.

    Unless he can wrestlefuck Conor which is highly doubtful, he will get knocked out again or outboxed the whole fight. Conor will counter him at will.

    Conor is a more skilled striker in everyway compared to Poirier and I don't even like Conor.

    Dustin needs to somehow drag this into 4-5 round for a win. That's a tall task

    Because in that same time, he also became a two divisional champ and only lost vs Khabib.

    Ir's not that hard to comprehend.

    Because he hasn’t been active that means he’s not better? The only way Poirier even has a chance this time is if Conors not hungry anymore, he’s rich now

    Keep crying..

    The possible rapist, assaulting, very mean guy is still better than your good guy fighter.. unless that guy is khabib.. and khabib is debatable as a good guy..

    Just like jones..

    It just is what it is.. you don't have to like it.. you just have to accept it..

    You're like children.. he's mean and therefore has to lose.. it doesn't work like that..

    But since then Conor couldn't even knock an old nursing home patient off the bar stole.

    Thats why the Conman wanted to fucking fight Diego Sanchez at WW?? Dude is too scared to fight at LW unless it is for the belt because Conor knows he can't hang with the big boys at LW. Conor needed the IV to beat up manlets at FW. I predicted Conor would fall off a cliff many years ago and it has been come true. Dude is a product of the UFC hype machine, ala Ronda.

    You mean he will take a bullshit decision win at the end of the fight? It's possible.

    a fluke win at a weightclass he was enormous in, two bad performances at welterweight, and then yeah, he beat alvarez, his one good win in five years. compare that to cejudo or cormier's road to two division champion. what conor did was nothing compared to that. he's a mockery as a two division champion.

    i'm saying he sucks in the ring compared to poirier and you guys need to take the beer goggles off and see that he's a lump of shit as a fighter now.
