McGregor vs Poirier Prop Bets: Will Conor Make Good On Promise Of First-Minute Stoppage?

The UFC’s biggest star, Conor McGregor, returns to the Octagon for the first time in over a year in the main event of UFC 257 as he takes on Dustin Poirier in a rematch from 2014. When looking at the UFC 257: Poirier vs McGregor 2 main event odds, it should come as no surprise that the former “champ-champ,” McGregor, is a -315 favorite with the former interim lightweight champion, Poirier, coming back at +245.

However, you may not be interested in laying the chalk at -315 and would prefer to bet on this fight with a little more juice. Well, online sportsbook Bovada has released a list of McGregor vs Poirier prop bets to provide you with more options for wagering on this bout. Below I will outline all of the McGregor vs Poirier prop bets available and provide my favorite plays for this fight.

McGregor vs Poirier Prop Bets

As mentioned off the top, Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier fought in 2014 when “Notorious” scored a first-round knockout over the “Diamond” in just 1:46. Understandably, McGregor is a sizable favorite to win the rematch but the list of Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor prop bets provides some intriguing alternate options to give more value on your bets.

McGregor vs Poirier Prop Bets – First-Minute Finish?

One of the reasons that McGregor has become a superstar within the sport is that he talks trash and backs it up by doing what he says he’s going to do. Well, he knocked out Poirier in under two minutes when they met just over six years ago. This time around, the Irishman says he’ll cut that in half by earning a first-minute knockout.

Bovada has released a prop bet for that very market “Will fight complete one minute” with the “Yes” option coming in at -550 and the “No” at +375.

Personally, it’s hard to go against what McGregor says and sprinkling a prop when a fighter calls their shot is a fun bet to make as it feels like you’re working together. I don’t think Conor gets Dustin out of there in a minute but again for something fun at nearly 4/1, I wouldn’t blame you for taking a shot as this is one of the McGregor vs Poirier prop bets that is unique and could be profitable.

Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier Prop Bets – Round Betting Picks

Now, if the first minute prop bet is too stressful for you, there are round betting McGregor vs Poirier prop bets that can give you a little more flexibility. There are two round betting markets that I will be playing. The first is UNDER 2.5 rounds at -185 which means the fight must end before the 2:30 mark of the third round. The second bet I like with a little more value is McGregor to win in Round 2 at +350.

Since McGregor has left the featherweight division, where he knocked out six of his seven opponents, including four in the first round, he has gone past the first round in four of his five fights. Poirier has become a very durable and tough lightweight who has been involved in some dogfight brawls recently. I think the first round will have fireworks but ultimately Poirier will survive, but McGregor will maintain the pressure and stop him in the second.
