We are in the homestretch to the epic trilogy bout finally commencing. A pair of top lightweights, Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor, will collide on Saturday, July 10, for a third time in what has become an epic series. The rivals third and likely final meeting will take place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and top a loaded UFC 264 fight card in front of a sold-out crowd — the first in the city for an MMA event since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

After Poirier scored the shocking TKO over McGregor in January, many expected him to be next in line for the vacated lightweight title after Khabib Nurmagomedov’s sudden retirement. Instead, Poirier chose to pursue the big money third bout with McGregor and left Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler to scrap it out for the crown. With Oliveira scoring his own surprising knockout to claim the belt, UFC president Dana White has said that the winner on Saturday is next in line for a title shot.

Look no further than the co-main event for the latter as Stephen Thompson looks to ascend to one more title challenge with a win over Gilbert Burns in the welterweight division. Plus, former title challenger Carlos Condit looks for his third straight win when he takes on Max Griffin on the preliminary card.
