UFC 257: Poirier vs. McGregor 2 full betting odds


Check out the full betting odds for this Saturday’s UFC 257 event headlined by lightweight contenders Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.

In the headliner, McGregor returns to the Octagon for the first time in a year when he takes on Poirier in a highly-anticipated rematch. These two first met way back at UFC 178 in 2014 in a featherweight bout, with McGregor knocking Poirier out in the first round. They now meet again over six years later but at lightweight this time. With UFC lightweight champion Nurmagomedov’s return to the Octagon questionable, the winner of this fight could earn a title shot.

The co-headliner is also a tremendous matchup featuring Dan Hooker against former three-time Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler. Hooker is coming off of a decision loss to Poirier last June, while Chandler is coming into the UFC riding a two-fight win streak, with knockouts over Benson Henderson and Sidney Outlaw. With lightweight so wide open, Hooker vs. Chandler is a very important fight for the division and the winner will be in a good spot.

There are 12 bouts currently scheduled for UFC 257. Check out the complete list of opening odds for the event courtesy of MMAOddsbreaker.com.
