UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3 


   

Trilogies are becoming increasingly rare in MMA, especially in the  UFC . When it involves two very high level fighters, the chance of this happening is even smaller. That's why  UFC 264 is a special event, not just for its main event, but for bringing several interesting fights along the entire  card .

UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3


In the main event of the night,  Dustin Poirier and  Conor McGregor  meet for the third time in their respective careers to put an end to their intense trajectory between the two. In the first duel, in 2013, the Irishman confirmed his meteoric rise and knocked out the American in the first  round . Seven years later, the moments changed and “Diamond” showed once again that they belonged to the top of the lightweight division by knocking out “Notorious”.

The co-main fight also draws a lot of attention in the welterweight category. Brazilian  Gilbert Durinho , who is looking for a new opportunity to fight for the division's belt, faces another experienced name in  Stephen Thompson , who has already had two chances to win the belt and wants one more.

The  card also features interesting fights. In feathers, the grappling specialist  Ryan Hall returns to the Octagon for an intriguing duel against  Ilia Topuria , while the Brazilian  Jennifer Maia faces  Jessica Eye in a confrontation between former challengers of the fly belt.

UFC 264 will be held this Saturday (10) directly from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The prelims for the event is scheduled to start at 11PM, while the main card expected to start at 3AM, Sunday, official time in UK.
