Previously ‘The Notorious’ defeated Poirier when they first clashed inside the cage at UFC 178. However, the tables turned in the favour of ‘The Diamond’ in the rematch at UFC 257. Hence, the UFC set up a trilogy fight to settle the result once and for all. Even though it is not a title fight, the stakes are very high and the promotion already generated much hype for the main event.

The UFC universe is eagerly waiting for the fight. Many big names in the entertainment industry have given their predictions for the fight. One of them is the British television personality Steve-O. The UFC posted a video on their Instagram page of Steve giving his prediction for the fight. In the video, he said, “So we got McGregor and Poirier’s 3 coming up and dude Poirier all the way.”
