UFC 264 – Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 3 date: UK start time, live stream, TV channel, prelims for trilogy fight – UK News Agency
There’s nothing quite like a Conor McGregor fight. This week he faces off against long time rival Dustin Poirier but, before that, comes the press conference,
It’ll be the third time the pair have faced off. The ledger currently stands at one a piece. McGregor defeated Poirier at Featherweight back in 2014, with a first round KO. Poirier returned the favour earlier this year at UFC 267 with a second round finish. The third contest will be the rubber match, and will almost certainly determine who fights the current UFC Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, next.
Who wins this time? Current odds have it almost exactly 50/50. I expected McGregor to make short work of Poirier in the second fight given how conclusive the first was, but Poirier’s improved defence, along with an improved chin at Lightweight, allowed him to withstand early pressure in the first round before taking over the fight. An accumulation of calf kicks, and some sharp boxing, allowed Poirier to take McGregor out in the second round.
Can McGregor find an answer to those calf kicks? Will he switch his current, boxing-heavy style for a return to the light-footed karate movement of his earlier fights? Can Poirier make lightning strike twice?
