The UFC has a very entertaining fight coming this Saturday when Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor have their long-awaited rematch. This fight is at the UFC Fight Island on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, with limited number of fans in attendance because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Poirier has fought the best that the UFC has to offer for almost a decade and he’s beaten Max Holloway (twice), Jim Miller, Anthony Pettis, Justin Gaethje, Eddie Alvarez and Dan Hooker. Poirier was the interim lightweight champion after beating Holloway at UFC 236 on April 13th, 2019 and he clearly wants to win the “real” one.

A two-division champion at Cage Warriors, a British MMA promotion and in the UFC, “Notorious” changed the business forever, doing it all, dominating the featherweight and lightweight divisions. McGregor has wins against Max Holloway, Dustin Poirier, Chad Mendes, Jose Aldo, Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone. He faced Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 after almost two years out of the UFC, which was not smart but then he stopped Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds at UFC 246 on January 18th, 2020, after over 15 months away.
