McGregor hasn’t fought since he defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in just 40 seconds in January last year. The Irishman looked spectacular on the night and was primed for a big 2020 before COVID-19 interrupted his plans. But now, he returns and will face tough competition in Dustin Poirier.

Poirier is a renowned UFC lightweight who has cemented his status as one of the best in the division besides reigning champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. With wins against Justin Gaethje, Max Holloway, Dan Hooker, Anthony Pettis, Eddie Alvarez, and more, Poirier has gained the respect of hardcore UFC fans who have come to appreciate his exciting, yet technical fighting style.
