UFC 302: Islam Makhachev v Dustin Poirier tips, predictions & odds

Islam Makhachev to win by KO, TKO, DQ or Submission @ 4/11

Makhachev has lost just one of his 26 professional MMA fights and is currently riding a 13-fight win streak in the UFC, beating Charles Oliveira to win the title in October 2022 and twice defending against Alexander Volkanovski.

UFC 302 represents Makhachev's first defence against a more natural lightweight, with Volkanovski moving up from featherweight to face the Dagestani. Poirier is a former interim champion, but has twice fallen short when fighting for the title against Khabib Nurmagomedov and Oliveira, and Catterall expects a late stoppage on Saturday night.
