CONOR McGREGOR has a 90 per cent chance of beating Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 – if their simulated fight is anything to go by.
The 32-year-old pair headline on Fight Island this Saturday, just over six years after McGregor won their first at featherweight.

Ahead of the rematch, Operation Sports attempted to predict the future as they simulated McGregor versus Poirier ten times on UFC 4.
And it was pretty viewing for the Irishman, as he lost just ONCE in the video game version.
To cap off nine wins from ten, McGregor scored a picture-perfect head kick KO.
Poirier revealed he wanted himself and McGregor to both be ‘dripping with blood’ inside the cage.
And his words were echoed in the simulation, with the lightweight duo bloodied, battered and bruised in almost every match.
Despite the virtual versions promising a thriller, McGregor has vowed to close the show in just 40 seconds.
And in an interview with BT Sport, the former two-division champion challenged Poirier to withstand the onslaught and see who comes on stronger later in the fight.
McGregor said: “I’m going to put on a flawless performance, an absolute clinic. I’ve never been more confident in my endurance than I am now.

“Dustin and his teammate take a bit of disrespect from me saying I’m going to take him out in 60 seconds, it works both ways.
“If you can last through the drama I’m about to bring to you, we will see what you’re about and who has the endurance.
“I’m excited all across the board, I’m confident. All my skill are on fire at the minute.”
