UFC 242: Khabib vs Poirier – Who Will Win?

While the betting odds indicate that Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to win this match between him vs Dustin Poirier, there’s a rumor that Khabib is actually going to lose the match! Poirier has been one of the best names in the UFC Lightweight division over the past few months – and his fights against the likes of Alvarez, Holloway, Pettis and Gaethje prove just how good he is!

Poirier is known to be someone who performs really well in high-pressure situations! If he beats Khabib, he will become the unified world lightweight champion – and also the first man to ever defeat Khabib Nurmagomedov! There is a strong belief by the fans that Poirier might defeat his opponent by knocking him out.

If Khabib loses this fight, it is probably going to lead to Conor McGregor challenging Dustin Poirier as he will then see him as a bigger fish when compared to Khabib.

While all that is still speculatory, all that we know is that Khabib vs Poirier is going to be one of the best matches of 2019! Stay tuned for more updates on this.
