Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will be going at it for a third time this weekend, headlining a stacked bill at UFC 264.
The pair each hold a win over the other from their two previous meetings, with ‘Notorious’ picking up a decisive first round TKO in their first meeting back at UFC 178 in 2014 and ‘the Diamond’ then going on to gain his revenge last year at UFC 25, with a second-round TKO of the Irishman.
That leaves this third meeting wide open and there’ll be a shot at Charles Oliveira's lightweight world title up for grabs for the winner. Here’s everything you need to know.
UFC 264 will be taking place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in front of 20,000 fans.
UFC 264 will land on Saturday July 10th with the event expected to start at 11pm in the UK for early prelims and the main card beginning at 3am. Expect the main event to take place between 5am and 6am.

What They Say
Conor McGregor: "I beat him in the original bout, but I lost in the rematch and now we’ve got a trilogy, I’ve got a few little adjustments to make. I feel very, very confident. I’m very focused and driven, and I’ll go in there and put on one hell of a performance and get it back on July 10.”
Dustin Poirier: “The guy is good at a lot of things, man. He really is. He’s special. And I felt it again in January when we fought. His timing, his willingness to put himself in harm’s way to land shots - all the attributes you have to have to go out there and finish guys like he does.”
