Dustin Poirier v Conor McGregor 2
Dustin Poirier v Conor McGregor 2 – Back this 12/1 shot on the fight, Risk-Free.
I think it’s safe to say that Conor McGregor is a Marmite fighter – you either love him or hate him – but have you considered he could actually lose against Dustin Poirier?
Now Poirier fans around the world will believe that McGregor can be beaten, but the bookmakers are not that confident. Most offers fall in favour of the Irishman, but in the fight game, stranger things have happened.
Hear me out, I know McGregor is a great fighter and if he lands with his punches then it might be an early night for Poirier, but what if Poirier handles the onslaught and manages to get McGregor on the floor? – we could have a different kind of fight on our hands.
Let’s get this straight, this is not the same Dustin Poirier that fought McGregor back in 2014. Poirier has improved, and he has since defeated the likes of Max Holloway, Eddie Alvarez, Justin Gaethje and Anthony Pettis. This is not going to be all straight forward for McGregor.
McGregor is not at his best when he is taken down – he has shown this against Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov, and although I am not saying Poirier is in the same class as those two, I do feel McGregor will struggle if Poirier takes him down and slaps a triangle armbar or D’Arce choke on him.
I have to be honest here, I can’t see many people apart from die-hard Poirier fans backing against McGregor on January 23 – but what if you could bet Poirier to win with a risk-free bet?
Paddy Power is offering new customers the chance to bet on the McGregor versus Poirier fight and have the opportunity to claim money back as cash if the bet is unsuccessful.
This offer seems a no brainer if you don’t want McGregor to win because if Poirier does win then you win the bet and if he loses, you get your money back. Win-win really.
Personally, I cannot see McGregor losing against Poirier, but with a risk-free bet, you have nothing to lose and I have already mentioned that if Poirier gets at McGregor and tries to keep him on the mat, then this might not end up the way you all expect it to.
For Poirier to win this fight be submission, Paddy Power is offering odds of 12/1 that The Diamond gets McGregor to tap out at any stage of the fight. By taking advantage of the risk-free bet, you will either make a £120 profit or get your original stake back.
Seems like a calculated risk to me.
