Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier: An epic rivalry

McGregor (22-5) and Poirier (27-6) have fought each other twice. The latest one came earlier this year at UFC 257, wherein the latter fight ended with Poirier avenging his defeat from 2014.

The ‘Diamond’ humbled McGregor en route to a TKO win, handing him his only career loss via KO/TKO. Poirier had also passed out an opportunity to fight for the lightweight gold after the departure of Khabib Nurmagomedov just to fight McGregor.

McGregor has many things at stake on July 10. He will be out to regain lost ground and silence the critics who have termed him a money maker and less of a fighter in recent years.
