Legacy on the line this Sunday. Conor McGregor returns to the UFC Octagon to sort out his unfinished business with Dustin Poirier.
DUSTIN POIRIER VS CONOR MCGREGOR BETTING
Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor are set to share the UFC Octagon for the final time this Sunday as their trilogy fight brings a conclusion to their rivalry. With each fighter boasting a victory over the other, the final fight offers the chance to settle any debates once for good.
Back in 2014, during his meteoric rise to fame, Conor McGregor claimed bragging rights over their first contest – UFC 178. The Notorious one made quick work of Poirier that day. By pressuring his opponent into making a mistake, Conor was able to land an explosive left hook behind Poirier’s ear – knocking him out and forcing an end to the fight in his favour. The official finish came at 1:46 into the first round, marking Poirier’s first UFC loss via KO/TKO.
The second time the pair faced off was earlier this year, on 24 January 2021. To the dismay of the millions of McGregor fans around the world, Dustin Poirier was able to get his revenge. The American mixed martial artist became the first UFC fighter to defeat the Irishman by knockout, which came about in the second round of the fight.
This Sunday, history will unfold in Las Vegas as a sold-out crowd is set to pack the T-Mobile Arena to watch these two great contestants put an end to their epic trilogy. For Dustin Poirier, this fight serves as another chance at vindication, an opportunity to put to rest the demons of UFC 178. On the other hand, the ‘champ-champ’ – who has never lost to the same opponent twice – will want UFC 264 to be remembered as his redemption arc into the sport he loves.
