Dustin Poirier: 26-6
Conor McGregor: 22-4
The UFC will kick off its 2021 pay-per-view calendar with Irish-MMA superstar Conor McGregor making a return to the Octagon. The former featherweight and lightweight champion makes yet another comeback with the UFC on Saturday night. He squares off with Dustin Poirier in a rematch taking place in the lightweight division.
In their first fight back in 2014, McGregor took less than two minutes to win by TKO. That fight took place at featherweight, but Poirier has emerged into his own as a lightweight, including a brief run as interim champion after a dominant win over Max Holloway. Poirier has gone on a 10-2 run since the loss to McGregor with one loss coming to Khabib Nurmagomedov, arguably the most dominant fighter in UFC history.
On previewing his upcoming opponent – “I think he’s a good fighter. He’s even a great fighter. But great is still levels below me. I’ll knock Dustin out inside 60 seconds.” – Conor McGregor
