We’re just a few days away from Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier.
The pair are set to collide in a lightweight rematch that will headline the UFC 257 pay-per-view event taking place Saturday night in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
It’s one heck of way to kick off the new year for the UFC as McGregor — the biggest star in the sport’s history — will be competing for the first time in over a year.
His last outing was at UFC 246 last January where he comfortably disposed of Donald Cerrone just 40 seconds into the first round.
He will face a much tougher test in Poirier this time as while he came away with the knockout win in their first meeting back in 2014, that was at featherweight and “The Diamond” has improved significantly since.
With an exciting lightweight co-main event between Dan Hooker and the debuting Michael Chandler also in-store, UFC 257 promises to be a can’t-miss event.
So with all that said, here’s everything you need to know about watching UFC 257 as well as pricing information.
