How to watch UFC 264: Poirier vs McGregor 3

UFC 264

It’s the Weekend of Champions and part of that is UFC 264. The fact that there is no title at stake doesn’t make this fight any less epic, as Conor McGregor is fighting Dustin Poirier again.

It’s the third fight between the two and it’s happening this Saturday, July 10, in Las Vegas. Fans will have plenty to be excited about, as “The Notorious” (Conor McGregor) won the first bout at UFC 178 (2014) by TKO in round 1, while “The Diamond” (Dustin Poirier) won the rematch at UFC 257 (January 2021) by 2nd round TKO.

This third rematch could settle the score between the two, and, while Connor has a beef with Poirer (the first man to beat Conor by TKO), Poirer wants to keep his winning streak, currently at 6 out of his last 7 fights.


The event is an ESPN+ exclusive and is scheduled for July 10, 6 PM ET / 3 PM PT.

UFC 264: Poirier vs McGregor 3 preview

Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier is the former Interim Lightweight Champion. He is currently the #1 ranking UFC Lightweight, with 20 out of 27 wins under his belt by knockout or submission. He is also the first fighter to win against Connor by a technical knockout.

“Notorious” Conor McGregor is the former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight champion. The MMA’s biggest star is one of the most famous athletes worldwide while being the first Irish born UFC champion. He has 19 wins by knockout under his belt.

The event will be the first one in front of a full crowd in Las Vegas since UFC 246 (January 19, 2020). Those in attendance can also enjoy the co-main event, which will feature an intriguing welterweight matchup between two former title challengers: #4 ranked Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson vs #2 ranked Gilbert Burns.

As for Poirier vs McGregor 3, MMA expert Brandon Wise believes that this will be McGregor’s most important fight of his career. After losing to Poirier by TKO in their previous match-up, it will be interesting to see what adjustments McGregor will be able to make for this fight.

According to former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, cited by ESPN, Poirier will be the winner.

After watching their second fight, I’ve gotta go with Poirier. He just mixes it up so much better than Conor, and you could see in January that Conor just didn’t have that same energy we are used to seeing him have. That excitement. That fire. He’s always had that, where he just walks in the cage and is like, “This is my cage.” You didn’t see that in him last time. So, until Conor can prove me wrong, I’ve gotta go with Poirier.
