UFC 264, featuring the lightweight trilogy between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor, is likely to be the biggest (and most profitable) pay-per-view (PPV) event of the year.

That’s why UFC and broadcast partner ESPN are pulling out all the stops for “McGregor vs. Poirier 3,” going down this Sat. night (July 10, 2021) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLE DIP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Phoenix, Ariz., on Sat., May 7, 2022, with a blockbuster championship doubleheader. Headlining the pay-per-view (PPV) event will be Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, seeking to defend his title against No. 1-ranked contender, Justin Gaethje. In UFC 274’s co-main event, women’s Strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas, looks to avenge her loss against No. 2-seeded, Carla Esparza. And top-ranked Lightweight contenders collide when Michael Chandler (No. 5) locks horns with Tony Ferguson (No. 7) in a fan-friendly 155-pound clash for the ages.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Joining the UFC 264 broadcast team will be ESPN hosts Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman, who will accompany regular desk analysts Michael Eaves and Karyn Bryant alongside former UFC champions Michael Bisping and Dominick Cruz.

That’s according to MMA Junkie.

As expected, the commentary table will feature the trio of Jon Anik, Joe Rogan, and Daniel Cormier. Free-wheeling UFC correspondents Megan Olivi and Lauro Sanko will handle the roving reporting while Bruce Buffer resumes his role as “veteran voice of the Octagon.”

This is why remotes have a mute button.
