UFC superstar Conor McGregor is back in action as he takes on No. 1 contender Dustin Poirier in a highly-anticipated rubber match.
There’s a lot on the line tonight when Irish MMA icon Conor McGregor clashes with Louisiana’s Dustin Poirier for the third time on UFC 264 in Las Vegas.
Bragging rights, honour and possibly a title shot against newly-crowned lightweight champion Charles Oliveira.
And for McGregor especially, it’s a chance to show that he’s still one of the best in the world after loosing the rematch to Poirier by TKO back in January.
UFC 264 also marks the first time T-Mobile Arena will host an MMA event with sold-out, a full-capacity crowd since the COVID-19 pandemic.
As for the rest of the card, there is a lot more to look forward to other than the evenings main attraction.
In the co-main event, top-ranked welterweights Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson and Gilbert Burns will square off in a big fight between two former title challengers hoping to earn a new shot at the belt. Furthermore, well-known names such as Greg Hardy and “Suga” Sean O’Malley will both step in the cage during the main card. Hardy, a former NFL player, takes on Tai Tuivasa in the heavyweight division while O’Malley, one of the sports most popular prospects, faces UFC newcomer Kris Moutinho.
