Fight day is here. Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier are finally set to settle the score on Saturday night inside the T-Mobile Arena in the main event of UFC 264. The pair have traded verbal barbs all week long as McGregor continues to insist that Poirier is “a dead man” once they enter the Octagon. Poirier, meanwhile, has brushed off just about everything while staying cool, calm and collected.

Poirier has taken the long road to potential stardom. The Louisiana native has overcome some crushing defeats in his career, including a 2014 TKO loss to McGregor in less than two minutes. But Poirier bounced back from that loss to run off an 11-2 (1 NC) record with wins over five former titleholders, including McGregor, on his road to this trilogy main event. McGregor, on the other hand, became the global superstar of the moment shortly after his win over Poirier when he claimed both the featherweight and lightweight titles. But the Irishman has hit a bit of a rough patch with just a 3-3 record since 2016.
