Weightlifter Mikhail Koklyaev on Sunday, January 24, gave a forecast for the fight between Irish Conor McGregor and American Dustin Poirier in the framework of the UFC 257 tournament.

“McGregor wins, the fight will be longer, longer than their first meeting. The reason of that? It’s just that McGregor has to show a very good show, very good preparation and “breathe” Poirier, “Koklyaev told REN TV.

At the same time, the weightlifter noted that if the American turns out to be too hardy, the Irish fighter “will hit him quickly and everything will end with a knockout.”

On the eve, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov also shared his prediction before the upcoming fight between McGregor and Poirier. According to him, if the fight ends early, the Irishman will win, but if Poirier holds out until the third or fourth round, he will be able to beat the opponent.

The fight between ex-UFC champion in two weight classes Conor McGregor and ex-temporary belt lightweight champion Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 will take place early in the morning of January 24, Moscow time. The fight will take place on Boytsovsky Island – on the territory of Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. REN TV channel will show the fight live.

McGregor and Poirier had already fought six years ago, and the Irishman won a crushing victory.
