UFC Conor McGregor

I’m perfectly aware Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor (pictured) are not tonight’s featured attraction. In fact, the featherweights aren’t even UFC 178‘s co-main event.

However, I can’t remember another fight that was third-to-top billing that received so much attention. I’ve been eyeing this particular line like a hawk ever since the Gambling Gods released them.

McGregor has remained a decent odds-on favorite from the jump, and as of right now he’ll enter the cage tonight as a 3-1 favorite to once again silence haters. Poirier, meanwhile, checks in as more than a 2-1 underdog.

I really think there’s great value in Poirier here, from a betting standpoint. Either way, it should be an epic shootout.

UFC 178 goes down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Here are the wagering lines for tonight’s fights:

Preliminary Card:

Cody Gibson -200
Manny Gamburyan +160

Jon Tuck +200
