Previewing UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3 “The Trilogy Fight”



UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place this Saturday (July 10, 2021) at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, USA.

A lightweight trilogy bout between former interim UFC Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier and former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor will headline the event. Their first fight was a featherweight bout that happened in September 2014 at UFC 178, where McGregor won by first-round technical knockout.

They then ascended to lightweight for an eventual rematch in January 2021 at UFC 257, where Poirier prevailed via second-round knockout. Conor McGregor enters the UFC 264 main event being just 1-3 in his last four, including the loss to Floyd Mayweather in boxing. If he loses this, many would wonder if this is the end for McGregor as a top contender, which is now the underdog of the fight with odds at +105 according to Sports Betting Dime.

In the co-main event, a huge welterweight battle will go down as Gilbert Burns battles the tough and talented Stephen Thompson. This will definitely serve as a future title eliminator and put one of these 170 lbs into title contention.

Elsewhere on the card, the ever popular Sean O’Malley will lock horns with Kris Moutinho as O’Malley looks to rise the ranks in the Bantamweight division once again.
