Mac is back — and he’s getting his own press conference.
“The Notorious” Conor McGregor will join lightweight nemesis Dustin Poirier on stage later tonight (Thurs., July 8, 2021) alongside promotion president Dana White for the UFC 264 pre-fight press conference, staged in advance of their 155-pound trilogy this weekend (Sat., July 10) inside the jam-packed T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The LIVE press conference stream kicks off promptly at 8 p.m. ET in the embedded video player above.
Why so late?
Because the former “champ champ” does whatever the fook he wants, that’s why. In fact, the bookies are counting on it, which is why you can slice off some cheddar for the UFC 264 cracker using today’s press conference betting guide right here. Hopefully any antics are of the aquatic nature and don’t involve any moving violations (or subsequent arrests).
With any luck, they’ll just shout at one another about the upcoming fight.
McGregor (22-5) drew first blood at the UFC 178 PPV back in late 2014, scoring a technical knockout win over “The Diamond” when both competitors were up-and-coming featherweights. Poirier (27-6, 1 NC) would later get revenge against “Notorious” — this time at lightweight — when they ran it back atop the UFC 257 card in January of this year.
This one is will settle the score once and for all — and earn the winner a crack at the 155-pound title, currently worn by Brazilian wunderkind Charles Oliveira.
