One of the biggest trilogy fights in UFC history will take place on Saturday night. In the main event of UFC 264, Conor McGregor (22-5) squares off with Dustin Poirier (27-6, 1 NC) for a third time from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Michigan sports bettors have a lot of promo options available for Saturday’s big fight, giving them a chance to bring home some big bucks.
Rubber match to settle the score
These two stars met back in 2014, with McGregor scoring a dominant TKO just 1 minute, 46 seconds into the first round. That fight was at featherweight (145 pounds).
The rematch took place at lightweight (155 pounds) in January of this year, with Poirier scoring the surprising TKO upset victory in the second round (2:32).
Currently for UFC 264, Poirier finds himself as a slight favorite over McGregor. DraftKings Sportsbook has him as a -130 favorite, while McGregor is listed at +110 to win.
