UFC fans will soon be treated to the upcoming trilogy fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.
McGregor beat Poirier in September 2014, but ‘The Diamond’ got the perfect revenge with a knockout win at UFC 257.
A series of heavy punches and kicks proved to be the deciding factor in Poirier’s victory over McGregor, and now MMA followers are eagerly awaiting the third reunion in the Octagon.
The third meeting between Poirier and McGregor will take place on Saturday July 10, 2021 and fans can’t wait to see who ends up leading in the third attempt.
Start times have yet to be announced, but the battle for the headlines will likely begin in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Poirier and McGregor will face off at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.
Fans can purchase tickets from AXS.
With the United States having strict travel restrictions for British nationals, many UFC fans will be forced to watch the case from home or in sports bars.
UFC 264 will be a pay-per-view event in the UK which will air on BT Sport Box Office. It will cost you around £ 20.00 to access the event with rehearsals being broadcast throughout the weekend.
BT Sport will show the first preliminaries before the start of the headline fight.
More details will follow.
