The first fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier was contested in the
featherweight division. The fight transpired at UFC 178 (September 2014) and
saw McGregor defeat Poirier via a first-round TKO.
Both the Irishman and 'The Diamond' subsequently ascended to great heights in the
combat sports world. McGregor won the UFC featherweight title and the UFC
lightweight title and also went on to compete in the sport of boxing.
Conor McGregor etched his name in the history books by facing boxing legend Floyd Mayweather
Jr. in one of the highest-grossing combat sports events of all time – the much-discussed ‘money
fight’ back in August 2017.
UFC president Dana White is looking for an insurance policy for what
could be the promotion’s biggest pay-per-view of the year.
On July 10, Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor will square off in a
trilogy fight set to headline UFC 264, which will be held at T-Mobile
Arena in Las Vegas and serve as the UFC’s first full-capacity event held
in “Sin City” since the COVID-19 pandemic took away that option in March 2020.
With a lot riding on this card, White is in search of a backup fighter to
replace Poirier (27-6 MMA, 19-5 UFC) or McGregor (22-5 MMA, 10-3 UFC) should
one of them be unable to step inside the octagon. But so far, nothing is doing.
