UFC 257: POIRIER VS MCGREGOR 2, Picks, Odds & Analysis | The MMA Vivisection MAIN CARD Show
Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back with the MMA Vivisection MAIN CARD SHOW, breaking down a set of five bouts on the 12-bout UFC 257: Poirier vs. McGregor 2 Main Card.
"It’s not, perhaps the most electric main card that the UFC has ever put together for a PPV, but it is a fantastic event from top to bottom. Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 2 feels like a big chance for both men to prove where they are atop the lightweight division. Dan Hooker seems like a distinct challenge for Octagon newcomer Mike Chandler. And Matt Frevola vs. Ottman Azaitar should be an absolute banger." - Zane Simon
