“McGregor hasn’t played for a long time, he probably has less chances.
Conor had a big downtime - this is very bad.
In general, 50 to 50, but Poirier is preferable due to frequent performances, ”Sport24 quotes Kharitonov.
He stressed that long pauses in the performances of the Irishman could negatively affect him.
“I just know from myself that when you do not perform often, you can hit the bags in pairs, but you go into the cage and cannot do what you did in training.
And when you fight constantly - a completely different picture.
Conor, in theory, should win, but on the sports line Porier has more chances, "added Kharitonov.
Fight McGregor - Poirier will lead UFC 257, which will be held in Abu Dhabi on January 24.
Earlier it was reported that Khabib Nurmagomedov named the favorite of the fight McGregor - Poirier.
