The score is now tied one apiece.
Dustin Poirier stopped Conor McGregor in the UFC 257 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, a second-round knockout that avenged a previous loss to “Notorious” at UFC 178, back when both competitors were up-and-coming featherweights.
The trilogy concludes at UFC 264 on July 10, 2021, in Las Vegas.
To help get fans pumped for next month’s rubber match, the promotion has released the full fight video from UFC 264. Much has been made about the devastating calf kicks “The Diamond” landed on the heavy-handed Irishman, which no doubt contributed to McGregor’s not-so-shocking defeat.
Perhaps that’s why this guy wants to see the return of Mac’s karate stance.
The winner of Poirier-McGregor 3 is likely to score the next lightweight title shot against newly-crowned 155-pound kingpin Charles Oliveira, who captured the crown vacated by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 261 earlier this year.
