UFC 257: Poirier vs McGregor 2 – Get Ready For War (Official Preview)

The Notorious is set to face Dustin Poirier in the first MMA event of 2021

It will be McGregor’s first fight for a year, with his last bout against Donald Cerrone.

Since then, the Irishman announced his retirement from UFC but, as expected, is now back.

And according to the UFC, fight fans should “Get ready for War”.

In 2014, Rising Stars Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier met in Las Vegas, both hoping to pave their way to a world championship. Since then, McGregor has won Titles in two weight classes, while Poirier secured an interim Lightweight crown, both becoming UFC superstars in the process. The two will meet again on Saturday, January 23, at UFC 257.

 

 

That’s how they are billing the rematch between the two stars in their trailer for the fight, which was aired during UFC 256.

It shows footage from their original meeting back in 2014, recapping all the talk before the fight and then McGregor’s impressive victory in the octagon.

It goes on to show their journey’s since then, with McGregor becoming a two-weight champion and Poirier proving himself among the very best in the lightweight division.

The importance of the bout has been ramped up with speculation the winner will get a shot at the belt.

Khabib Nurmagomedov currently still holds it, but if he stands firm over his shock retirement, UFC President Dana White will set up a contest to battle for the vacant strap.

The winner of the UFC 257 headliner will be in pole position to compete for it, potentially against Justin Gaethje who Khabib beat in his final fight.
