Method of Victory: Khabib Nurmagomedov by Points (+200) — Khabib may be the best wrestler in UFC history, and that could position him well against Poirier and his middling takedown defense rate. Five of Khabib's last eight wins have come on points though, and Poirier has only been submitted once in his 30 pro fights. The superior striker, there's also little risk that Poirier loses by KO/TKO. This means you're able to get plus odds on what looks like it could be by far the most likely method of victory for a -370 favorite, pointing to some serious potential value.
