UFC 264 — Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 3: Fight card, odds, PPV price, date, start time, complete guide
One of the biggest fights of the summer goes down when Poirier and McGregor meet in a rubber match
Fight day is here. Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier are finally set to settle the score on Saturday night inside the T-Mobile Arena in the main event of UFC 264. The pair have traded verbal barbs all week long as McGregor continues to insist that Poirier is “a dead man” once they enter the Octagon. Poirier, meanwhile, has brushed off just about everything while staying cool, calm and collected.
The combatants first met in 2014 on McGregor’s rise to superstardom when the Irishman scored a first-round TKO of Poirier, who was also a rising contender in the featherweight division at the time. Then, the two met seven years later in January in the lightweight division with Poirier evening the score with a second-round TKO of his own. Now they look to put the final touches on this rivalry in arguably the biggest PPV event of the year.
The card also features the return of welterweight title contenders when Stephen Thompson and Gilbert Burns meet in the co-main event. The two fighters have come up short in their bids to become champion three times, but both are still within range of getting another crack with a win on Saturday. Plus, bantamweight knockout artist “Suga” Sean O’Malley is back when he faces UFC debutant Kris Moutinho to open the PPV festivities.

There was a bit of controversy on the scales for one of the undercard fights on Friday. Women’s bantamweight Irene Aldana missed the mark by 3.5 pounds for her scheduled bout with Yana Kunitskaya set for the main card. It’s the second straight time that a Kunitskaya opponent has missed this badly, but the first miss by Aldana in her career. The fight will still go forward with Aldana forfeiting 30% of her purse to Kunitskaya.
