Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier are getting a familiar face this weekend in “Sin City.”

Much like he did for their showdowns at UFC 178 and UFC 257, longtime combat sports referee Herb Dean will take center of the Octagon on July 10 in Las Vegas for the UFC 264 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner, where “Notorious” and “The Diamond” look to settle their score once and for all.

CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to T-Mobile Arena with a pair of thrilling world championship bouts. The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 29 coaches collide when Featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski, defends his title against No. 2-ranked contender, Brian Ortega. UFC 266’s co-main event will see women’s Flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko go for her sixth consecutive title defense when she meets No. 3-seeded contender, Lauren Murphy. Last, and certainly not least, Nick Diaz returns against former Welterweight roost ruler, Robbie Lawler, in a five-round banger.

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

Veteran judges Sal D’Amato, Derek Cleary, and Junichiro Kumijo will score the lightweight action from cageside, though we’re unlikely to need their services unless the five-round headliner somehow lasts all 25 minutes.

Don’t bet on it.

Elsewhere on the UFC 264 fight card, Gilbert Burns collides with fellow welterweight contender Stephen Thompson in 170-pound action. In addition, bantamweight sensation Sean O’Malley throws hands with UFC newcomer Kris Moutinho, while heavyweight hurter Greg Hardy looks to get back into the win column opposite Tai Tuivasa.
