UFC is back in action with a much-awaited fight, Poirier vs. McGregor. Conor McGregor returns to the Octagon this Saturday night in a duel that will take place at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas. They faced each other six months ago when Poirier won in a shocking second-round TKO. After that fight, McGregor confessed in an interview that he wasn't as comfortable as he needed to be because of the inactivity, but he will come back stronger.
The moment has come, five days left till McGregor's «revenge» fight against Poirier. This will be the first time since 2016 that McGregor has logged two appearances in a year. We should probably mention that Dustin Poirier's record is 27-6-0 (1NC) and his opponent’s is 22-5-0. McGregor is a former UFC featherweight and lightweight double-champion and is fifth in the UFC lightweight rankings. While Poirier is #1 in the UFC lightweight. Poirier has won six out of seven last matches, losing only one (UFC 242) in September 2019 against Khabib Nurmagomedov. This match will be the third match between them and will determine who fights the current UFC Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira.
