The time has finally arrived for one of the most anticipated rematches in recent memory. Nearly seven years later, Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will link up once again in the main event of UFC 257 on Saturday night in the U.S while competing in the wee hours of the morning from Abu Dhabi. McGregor successfully returned to the Octagon in January 2020 by stopping Donald Cerrone after nearly 18 months away. 

In the time since the first meeting in 2014, so much has changed. Poirier made the leap up to 155 pounds immediately after the contest and began a torrid run through the division, amassing an impressive 10-2 record with wins over the likes of Eddie Alvarez, Justin Gaethje, Anthony Pettis and Max Holloway. McGregor, meanwhile, went on the collect both the featherweight and lightweight titles before a one-off boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2017, which he lost by TKO.

In addition to the massive main event, another pivotal lightweight contest for the future of the title sits in the co-main event when former Bellator MMA champ Michael Chandler makes his debut against Dan Hooker. Chandler is hoping to add the UFC title to his already deep resume while Hooker is trying to get back in contention following a loss to Poirier last summer in a Fight of the Year contender. Plus, women’s strawweights kick off the PPV event when Amanda Ribas battles Marina Rodriguez.
