UFC 257: Dustin Poirier v Conor McGregor 2 is set to be a cracker as these two powerhouses fight for the second time, six years after Conor McGregor defeated Dustin Poirier during his volcanic rise to the top of the UFC.
Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor will face off at UFC 257 on January 23, 2021.
This bout will be Mcgregor’s first fight in 12 months being his last match in Jan of this year.
The Irishman had announced his retirement from UFC but clearly is now back to shake up the octagon once again.
Meanwhile, to wet that appetite, the UFC released a trailer for the fight, which was just aired during UFC 256.
The promo shows footage from the Poirier v McGregor fight back in 2014, recapping all the talk before the fight and then Conor McGregor’s impressive victory in the octagon.
The video then goes on to show both fighter’s journey’s since then, with Conor McGregor becoming a two-weight champion and Dustin Poirier proving himself among the top fighters in the lightweight division.
The importance of this fight has been heated up with speculation the winner of Dustin Poirier v Conor McGregor 2 will get a shot at the belt.
Khabib Nurmagomedov currently still holds it, but if he stands firm over his retirement, UFC chief Dana White will no doubt set up a contest to battle for the vacant strap.
The winner of the UFC 257: Dustin Poirier v Conor McGregor 2 headliner will be in pole position to compete for it, potentially against Justin Gaethje who Khabib beat in his final fight.
In the flyweight bout, we see Jessica Eye face Joanne Calderwood. Khalil Rountree sees Marcin Prachnio in the Light Heavyweight Bout. And in the Strawweight Bout Marina Rodriguez will fight Amanda Ribas.
This will no doubt be a great event and the fans agree:
