UFC 178 prediction Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier
If Poirier turns this into a pure ground and pound fest he has a good chance to win. But he does tend to want to strike with all fighters he does face and that might lend itself to being counter-punched by Conor McGregor, who is a master at that. Conor via first round TKO. Conor has a good chance against all "strikers" in the division, but will have a tough time against well rounded wrestlers like Mendes and also against Edgar. Even a guy like Guida will give him problems. Guida is the most one-dimensional of those three, but he isn't interested in proving he is a sexy striker against a guy like Conor, he'd make it an ugly fight that might not be that entertaining, but would give him a good chance to ground and pound and win a decision.
