BT Sport continues to kill the promo game with its “Shorts” series, promoting looming Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and other combat sporting events in a different and creative way, taking an interview from the athlete and presenting it through powerful animation.
The latest episode focuses on former UFC “champ-champ,” Conor McGregor, who is gearing up to rematch Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 257 on Jan. 23, 2021, on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
It will be the first fight in more than one year for McGregor, who was last seen knocking out Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in Jan. 2020. “Notorious” did intend to fight three times in 2020, but the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic put a damper on those plans.
The winner of the highly-anticipated rematch is expected to earn a 155-pound title fight against either current champion, Nurmagomedov, or another worthy combatant should “The Eagle” ultimately decide to stay retired.
