Experienced in the world of MMA and with the ability to analyze strategies for Dustin poirier, Conor McGregor left rivalry aside by highlighting his last tormentor's chances against Islam makhachev. According to 'Notório', the North American has an essential strike to capitalize on the current lightweight champion's (up to 70,3kg) habit in the fight. Fighters will face each other on June 1st, at UFC 302.

“I think Dustin knocks him out. I think the things that Makhachev does wrong, the things that he's not good at, he fumbles with his feet usually early on and falls on his kicks. He's been knocked out by a southpaw hook before in the UFC, and this is one of Dustin's best moves. If Dustin is going to make it, it will be this time,” McGregor said in a live broadcast with the duelbits.

By continuing his speech, Conor dismissed his status as a big favorite in the clash and stated that both have a chance of triumphing in the eagerly awaited clash.

“Obviously, Dustin also does his bad things which feed into Makhachev's strengths. So it's going to be a good fight to see which one will show up, but everything is on the line. There is no clear favorite. If we look at Dustin's last fight, he was being mistreated by Benoit Saint-Denis and resisted, then got up again, resisted and landed a blow. That's a great experience for this fight. If there is a chance for him to win, this will be it”, he concluded.
