The highly anticipated UFC 302 main event is just around the corner, and former two-division champion Conor McGregor has weighed in on the outcome. McGregor believes that Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier will seize his final title opportunity and emerge victorious against reigning lightweight champion Islam Makhachev.

Dustin Poirier (30-8 MMA, 22-7 UFC) is no stranger to championship bouts. Despite falling short in his previous two lightweight title attempts, he remains a perennial contender. His recent knockout victory over Benoit Saint-Denis at UFC 299 showcased his resilience and striking prowess.

Islam Makhachev (25-1 MMA, 14-1 UFC), on the other hand, has been dominant as the lightweight champion. With two successful title defenses under his belt, he aims to solidify his reign. However, McGregor sees a chink in Makhachev’s armor—one that Poirier can exploit.

Conor McGregor’s Prediction

In a live stream with Duelbits, Conor McGregor shared his insights on the upcoming clash. He pointed out Makhachev’s vulnerability to a specific shot—one that Poirier excels at. “I think Dustin does him, knocks him out,” McGregor stated confidently. “Makhachev fumbles over his feet early on and falls into shots. If Dustin’s ever going to do it, it’ll be this time.”

The Trilogy and Beyond

Conor McGregor and Poirier have a storied history, with their trilogy bout ending in McGregor’s unfortunate leg injury at UFC 264. Poirier currently leads the series 2-1, and a fourth fight with McGregor seems unlikely. Instead, Poirier’s focus remains on dethroning Makhachev and capturing the undisputed lightweight title.

As for McGregor, he returns to action at UFC 303 against Michael Chandler. With both Poirier and Makhachev piquing his interest, McGregor remains impartial: “Who do I wish for? Either or. I have history with both, and let’s see how it goes.”

For Dustin Poirier, UFC 302 represents his last shot at the undisputed championship. The ship has sailed on a rematch with McGregor, but destiny awaits him in the octagon. Will “The Diamond” shine brightest on this pivotal night? Fight fans eagerly await the answer.
