Why is Conor McGregor still in the lightweight rankings?

We are officially a day away from the UFC 257 pay-per-view event as Conor McGregor takes on Dustin Poirier in a lightweight headliner.

It will be a rematch of their featherweight bout back in 2014 that saw McGregor knock Poirier out in the first round.

However, “The Diamond” has improved significantly since ahead of what is a monumental matchup in the lightweight division which will more than likely determine who will fight for the title next.

There’s a pivotal co-headliner as well as Michael Chandler makes his promotional debut against the always-entertaining Dan Hooker. The winner of that bout could certainly stake a claim to face the winner of the main event for the 155-pound strap.

With that said, here’s all the information you need on how to watch and stream UFC 257:
