UFC 257: Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier Preview

The rematch took 6 years in making when Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier faced each other for the first time Conor knocked Dustin out in the very first round of the match. But it has been a long time since this fight and both of them have evolved commendably.

‘The Notorious’ is steeping inside the Octagon almost after a year. He fought Donald Cerrone in January 2020 at a fight in which he knocked Cowboy out just in 40 seconds of the first very round of the fight.

‘The Diamond’ is also coming in this fight with a unanimous decision win against Dan Hooker in July 2020. Poirier and Hooker got involved in a five-round brawl and in the end, Poirier emerges victoriously.

Prior to their last fights, they both faced loss against UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov that too by submission. Now with Khabib moving out of the title picture both of them are looking to get the title shot with this win.
