Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is holding another live pre-fight media day for select representatives of the athletes who will headline UFC 257 this weekend (Sat., Jan. 23, 2021), Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Etihad Arena on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi.
McGregor and Poirier will not be in attendance because “Notorious” is big enough to command his own press conference, which takes place at 8 a.m. ET later this morning (watch it here) under the watchful eye of UFC President, Dana White (details here), among others.
This morning’s UFC 257 media appetizer includes:
John Kavanagh – Owner of Straight Blast Gym in Dublin, Ireland, and Conor McGregor’s long-time trainer.
Mike Brown – Former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Featherweight champion and Dustin Poirier’s lead trainer.
Daniel Cormier — Former UFC Light Heavyweight (and Heavyweight) champion and current UFC color commentator.
The live stream begins promptly at 5 a.m. ET in the embedded video player above. To check out the first UFC 257 media day, featuring co-headliners Dan Hooker and Michael Chandler, among others, from earlier this week click here.
