UFC 242 is just two weeks away and excitement is at an all-time high! While the main event of UFC 242 in itself is quite interesting, the result of this match could spark off what is to be the greatest rematch in company history. Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov II is what is going to be the biggest fight ever in UFC!
However, a loss for Khabib might mean McGregor going after Poirier for the title. This is going to be an interesting fight from all angles – and is going to set up some future fights.

Who is Expected to win Khabib vs Poirier at UFC 242?
As of this writing, it is very tough to say who is going to win this match. Khabib vs Poirier is going to be something of a roller-coaster ride where both the men are absolute beasts. Khabib’s impressive 27-0 streak is at stake and the Russian isn’t going to give up easily.
Poirier, too, has been on quite an impressive roll of late. Having defeated the who’s who of the lightweight division, Khabib vs Poirier, despite being just a stepping stone for McGregor vs Khabib, is still worthy of the match-of-the-year award! Keep a close eye on this one – this is going to be quite a spectacle!
