McGregor hung up his gloves just months after his last fight following his TKO victory against Donald Cerrone.

It took McGregor just 40 seconds to beat American fan favourite Cerrone.

Poirier is a bigger price to win the bout at 6/4 after winning his last fight against Dan Hooker in June this year.

Something both McGregor and Poirer both have in common is the fact they have both suffered defeats to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Odds provided by Paddy Power.

If you think McGregor will take out Poirier in the first round, like he did against Cerrone, you can back him to win round one via KO/TKO at 13/5.

The bookies' odds suggest this is the most likely method of victory.

Although if you fancy a shock result, Poirier's most likely method of victory is via TKO/KO.
