The UFC hasn’t held an event in Las Vegas with a crowd since March 7. 2020.
That run ends on July 10 when the promotion heads back to T-Mobile Arena for UFC 264.
The main event of that pay-per-view card is the third meeting between former UFC interim
lightweight champion Dustin Poirier and ex-two division UFC kingpin Conor McGregor.
The first fight between these two took place in September 2014,
when both men were competing at featherweight. McGregor won that scrap with a
quick first-round knockout. After the loss, Poirier said he allowed McGregor’s
pre-fight antics to get in his head.
A more mature Poirier didn’t have that problem in the second meeting. Poirier has
gone 9-2-1 since he lost to McGregor. McGregor was 6-2. Poirier outclassed McGregor
in the second contest. He had progressed far more as a fighter than McGregor had
since their first matchup. Poirier disposed of McGregor at the middle of the second round via knockout.
