How to Watch UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3
After months of build-up, the Notorious One is back in the octagon for UFC 246. On Poirier vs. McGregor is set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV July 10, 2021, 3:00 PM PT. You can watch this brawl by combining ESPN+ and UFC PPV.
McGregor and Poirier have fought twice previously, and their third fight is the biggest UFC event of the year. In 2014, when he was still an up-and-coming fighter, McGregor defeated Poirier via KO in just two minutes. However, Poirier returned the favor and knocked out McGregor earlier this year in round two of UFC 257. That means McGregor has something to prove in their latest matchup.
The fighters are facing off in the lightweight division, but McGregor is in a class all his own. The Irish brawler was the first UFC fighter to hold two belts in two different weight classes simultaneously, and he’s a global celebrity with an electric personality. He’s also unpredictable, and even though Poirier is the favorite to win UFC 264, McGregor could pull off a surprise.
