Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held a special pre-fight press conference earlier today (Thurs., Jan. 21, 2021) in advance of the UFC 257 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which features the lightweight rematch between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier inside Etihad Arena on “Fight Island” in Abi Dhabi, UAE.

McGregor already holds a win over Poirier from the UFC 178 event more than six years back, when both combatants were trying to make a name for themselves at 145 pounds. No question they’ve each evolved since then ... but enough to change the result on Jan. 23? That’s just one of many questions heading into UFC 257.
Until we can answer them, settle for their first face off embedded above.
