Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier meet for the third and probably last time of their careers Saturday at UFC 264. Although there is no championship belt on the line for the lightweight fight, the best is:
According to UFC President Dana White, the winner of McGregor-Poirier 3 will face lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, challenging him for his belt. McGregor, 32, hasn’t held the lightweight belt since 2016; a win on Saturday, then, would further cement him as one of the best fighters the UFC has ever seen.
But first he has to go through Poirier (again).
The two fighters have traded TKO victories with each other, with McGregor (22-5) taking the first win at UFC 178 in 2014. Poirier (27-6-1) returned the favor with a second-round TKO in the rematch in the UFC. 257, though his victory came a round later than McGregor’s.
