UFC legend 'Notorious' Conor McGregor is set to battle fellow lightweight, and longtime rival, Dustin Poirier for the third time at UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3 on Saturday, July 10. McGregor vs. Poirier will serve as the main event on the UFC 264 card, and will surely attract one of the largest betting handles of any fight on the 2021 UFC schedule.
With his status as one of the all-time greatest, and perhaps most polarizing, fighters in UFC history, McGregor is going to draw a lot of attention on the UFC 264 betting markets. The most obvious wagering option is the Poirier vs. McGregor money line.
The latest McGregor vs. Poirier odds from William Hill Sportsbook list Poirier as the betting favorite at -125 (risk $125 to win $100) while McGregor is listed at +105. McGregor had initially been listed as the favorite, but recent rumors that the Irish fighter was battling a staph infection swayed the UFC 264 odds in Poirier's favor.
