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.

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.” 

Betfred Odds:
