“UFC 236 TONIGHT on ESPN+. Two former opponents of cave go conduct to conduct for a second time, in what will certainly be a thriller!” wrote McGregor. “I envision another blocking feat for Dustin in a sequel. It is always sparkling to see former foes compete, and who knows, maybe destiny foes again also.”
The male famous as “Mystic Mac” is customarily good with his predictions, though he might be unaware Holloway a small bit for tonight’s rematch with Poirier. “Diamond” did finish Holloway in their prior assembly though that stays a usually time in Holloway’s career that he’s been stopped inside of a cage, that includes his assembly with McGregor himself.
The latest UFC 236 column bets have Poirier during +375 to better Holloway around strikes and +800 to finish him by approach of submission. It’s not totally out of a doubt to see Poirier continue his lightweight prevalence and send Holloway behind down to featherweight with his initial detriment in over 5 years, though there’s a reason “Blessed” has been chaste in his final 13 bouts.
McGregor’s conduct coach, John Kavanagh, understands this fibre of success and is picking Holloway to win a rematch.
