Who is fighting at UFC 264?

The main event between McGregor and Poirier will be their second meeting this year and third overall, with McGregor winning the first bout back in 2014 and Poirier earning a revenge victory earlier this year. 

Also announced for the main card is a welterweight bout between Gilbert Burns and Stephen Thompson, while featherweights Ryan Hall vs. Ilia Topuria and a women's flyweight bout between Jennifer Maia and Jessica Eye will highlight the prelim fights. 

UFC 264 odds for main event

Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 3 Odds

McGregor enters this fight as a -126 favorite, a significantly smaller line than the -330 he was installed at when he was knocked out in the second round against Poirier in January.

While McGregor had some success landing strikes on Poirier in that UFC 257 bout, Poirier's chin held up while he battered Notorious with leg kicks. McGregor eventually succumbed to punches in the second round after his mobility was severely compromised. 

Prior to that defeat, McGregor knocked out Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds in January 2020 in his return to the octagon after losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov in a lightweight championship bout in 2018. McGregor is still 22-5 in his career with 19 wins by knockout and is one of the most dangerous strikers, and marketable stars in the UFC. 

Dustin "Diamond" Poirier is a slim +105 underdog for this bout. He's 7-1 in his last eight fights, with his only loss during that span coming in his own title shot against Khabib in 2019.
