Conor McGregor met Dustin Poirier

Conor McGregor met Dustin Poirier

Retiring in June, the return of Conor McGregor was announced by President Dana White after many negotiations. This is also the second confrontation between McGregor and Poirier since the first match at UFC 178 in 2014, with a first half knockout win for Irish boxers. 

Initially, in the face of disagreements with the UFC, Conor McGregor announced that he would host his rematch with Dustin Poirier in Ireland. In addition, "The Notorious" has confirmed that it will donate $ 500,000 to the Good Fight Foundation founded by Poirier. 

This opinion immediately received support from the audience, however, with the participation of the UFC, the match was moved to UFC 257 in January. 

If he is at UFC 257, this is the fourth time in his career that Conor McGregor has led a major event (numbering event) of the UFC without a title match. The preceding three times were confrontations with Nate Diaz (UFC 196, UFC 202) and Donald Cerrone (UFC 257). 

Conor McGregor met Dustin Poirier again after 7 years. 

Besides the results of Conor McGregor vs. Conor Dustin Poirier, another noteworthy point from the event is that champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has announced that he will follow the event to consider his decision to return. 

According to Dana White, Khabib will return "if he has a good enough performance" with the lightweight champion. This made the audience even more skeptical of his attitude around going well at the UFC.
