“What I’ve been telling people is if it ends in the first two rounds you’ve got to go with Conor. But if Poirier can turn it into a war and get that third and that fourth round, I think Poirier can win the fight but that’s the only way I see him winning the fight. If he can turn the fight into the Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje fight, he can wear Conor down and win the fight but I’m going to go ahead and pick Conor.”
