It’s here. Fight Day. It’s a big one, too.
Tonight’s UFC 264 fight card is headlined by a massive trilogy-closing bout between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. The pair first faced off on September 27, 2014, when McGregor knocked Poirier out in the first round of their clash at UFC 178 during his rise to mega-stardom. Poirier returned the favor earlier this year at UFC 257 when he handed McGregor the first knockout loss of his UFC career.
The co-featured bout will see Gilbert Burns attempt to rebound from his loss to Kamaru Usman by stepping in the Octagon against perennial contender Stephen Thompson.
