Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will finally settle their rivalry when they clash in the main event of UFC 264 on July 10. The lightweight bout tops the latest PPV card from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which will take place in front of a full capacity crowd.
Poirier and McGregor first fought at featherweight at UFC 178 in September 2014. McGregor made quick work of Poirier on that night, scoring a TKO win in less than two minutes. Much changed over the following years, with McGregor becoming a two-division champion while retiring and unretiring from the sport multiple times as Poirier matured into one of the greatest lightweights in UFC history.
They rematched in January, this time with Poirier scoring a second-round knockout after using leg kicks to set up the finish. The focus for the two remained on settling their differences in a big money trilogy fight rather than Poirier chasing the 155-pound championship after the retirement of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The rest of the card fills out rather nicely with an important welterweight contest in the co-main event. Former title challengers Stephen Thompson and Gilbert Burns meet as both look to get back to the title level. Thompson, 38, enters on a two-fight win streak while Burns is coming off the TKO loss to Usman for the title in February. Before that, Burns had ripped off six straight victories. Plus, knockout artist “Suga” Sean O’Malley is back when he takes on late replacement Kris Moutinho. O’Malley was originally scheduled to face Louis Smolka.
At UFC 264, one man will have their hand raised and will claim superiority in the rivalry nearly seven years after it began. Below is the complete fight card with the latest odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Stay tuned to this page throughout the build up to the event for the latest news, analysis and info.
