UFC 264

Former UFC double champ, Conor McGregor -- the promotion's biggest box office draw -- returns for the second time this year, locking horns with No. 1-ranked Lightweight contender, Dustin Poirier, in UFC 264's ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, which will take place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. McGregor and Poirier first met at UFC 178 back in Sept. 2014, with "Notorious" scoring a first round technical knockout finish. Poirier then exacted revenge at UFC 257 earlier this year, putting away "Notorious" in the second round of their highly-anticipated rematch. It's now a pivotal trilogy rubber match, with the winner likely earning a crack at the 155-pound belt later in the year. We'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 264 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "Sin City" right here before, during and well after the live show concludes.
