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.

MASSIVE MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in five years on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, with a 185-pound world title fight inside Qudos Bank Arena. In the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight roost-ruler, Israel Adesanya, plans to silence No. 5-seeded contender, Sean Strickland. In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

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.
