The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s 2021 pay-per-view schedule not only sees the return of its biggest star in Conor McGregor, but also a main event rematch seven years in the making when the “Notorious” one returns from a year-long hiatus and clashes with former interim-lightweight king Dustin Poirier at UFC 257.
The bout is a run-back of the pair’s 2014 featherweight scrap that McGregor won by first-round knockout. Since that fight, both have grown into two of the sport’s most popular and credentialed athletes. The bout is a matchup many inside the mixed martial arts industry have long waited for. With that in mind, Sherdog got the opinions of various personalities in the world of combat sports on who they see leaving Abu Dhabi victorious, including top-ranked UFC talents Brandon Moreno, Marvin Vettori, Jack Hermansson and One Championship flyweight grand prix winner Demetrious Johnson.
