This Saturday there will be a great MMA day. From the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will start the event UFC 264: Poirier vs McGregor 3, as the name says, we will see the third confrontation between the American fighter Dustin Poirier and the Irish fighter, Conor McGregor. This meeting promises to close in a great way the trilogy that the two fighters of the lightweight category have starred in the UFC. Dustin Poirier comes to this fight with a record of 26 wins, six losses and one fight without result, while his challenger on this day, Conor "The Notorious" McGregor has a record of 22 wins and five losses, however, of his last six meetings, three ended in wins and another three in losses for the Irishman. To understand the context of what we will witness this Saturday, we must go back to September 27, 2014, when at that time a young 25-year-old Dustin Poirier faced The Notorious in the central event of UFC 178, at that time the American did not He had the opportunity and was overwhelmingly defeated by the Irishman - who was living his best moment in the Octagon - who got a technical knockout in the first round of the match.
Next Saturday one of the most important fights in the UFC takes place again when Dustin Poirier faces Conor McGregor at the T-Mobil Arena. It will be the third time that the American and the Irish will meet in the most famous octagon in the world, so we review the last two fights and the complete card. There is no doubt that Notorious is one of those who wants this rematch the most because in January of this year he lost on the fast track to the Louisiana-born. In turn, had he achieved a victory, even on points, his plans to face Manny Pacquiao for a millionaire purse would not have been ruined. On the other hand, the second fight had taken place in Abu Dhabi because the first one took place in Las Vegas. On that night in 2014, McGregor managed to win on the fast track in the first round. However, in that clash Poirier had fought on the feather so he gave a lot of advantage in that category.
