Firas Zahabi, a renowned mixed martial arts coach, shared his views on the fight between former UFC two-weight champion Conor McGergor and American Dustin Poirier.
“I don’t want to say that Dustin has no chance of winning, but still I will give the advantage in the ratio of 60 to 40 in favor of McGregor. I am usually careful in my predictions, especially in fights at this level. Two elite fighters will meet here, who are able to defeat and knock out their rivals.
Why am I being so generous towards McGregor, you may ask? I think it has a lot to do with styles. Conor is the best counter-puncher in UFC history. There has never been such a counterpunch in MMA. Poirier’s main weapon is boxing. So this is exactly what McGregor needs, ” said the coach Firas Zahabi.
Recall that the fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will be the main event of UFC 257, which will take place on January 23rd on Yas Island at the Flash Forum indoor complex in Abu Dhabi.
