The Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier saga continues with the upcoming UFC 264 happening this weekend. The next fight completes the trilogy bout that started back in 2014 when McGregor defeated Poirier at Featherweight with a first-round KO.
Poirier secured his own share of victory against McGregor earlier this year at UFC 257, finishing the fight during the second round. This brings about a trilogy fight culminating in the much-awaited UFC 264, bringing two of the greatest UFC strikers back in the ring for a final face-off.
Conor McGregor v Dustin Poirier
The fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, for the third time, makes for the most highly anticipated rubber match in UFC history after it was announced back in April. The score will be settled inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on July 10 with only a few more days before the trilogy fight determines the ultimate victor. The result of the McGregor vs Poirier match also almost surely determines who fights current UFC Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, next.
As there’s nothing like a Conor McGregor fight, the UFC remains MMA’s premier promotion with McGregor as its biggest star (McGregor currently holds UFC’s highest-performing pay-per-view sales). Dustin Poirier can definitely hold his own, evident in the previous UFC 257 when he scored the shocking TKO over Conor McGregor. UFC 264 will also feature the Welterweight fight between Gilbert Burns and “Wonderboy” Stephen Thompson on its undercard.
