The first big pay-per-view (PPV) of the year will go down later tonight (Sat., Jan. 23, 2021) at UFC 257 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Etihad Arena on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., as Conor McGregor meets Dustin Poirier in a rematch six years in the making.
Before McGregor and Poirier battle it out in a main event that could produce the next No. 1 contender at 155 pounds, the rest of the UFC 257 PPV main card and “Prelims” will play out in violent fashion. From a co-headliner pitting Dan Hooker against Michael Chandler to a women’s strawweight clash between Amanda Ribas and Marina Rodriguez, UFC 257 is expected to bring the heat all night long.
