Tonight, MMA fans are getting treated to what might set the UFC box office record for the year. UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3 is one of the most-hyped rematches in recent memory, with rivals Conor “The Notorious” McGregor and Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier settling their score in a trilogy bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.



Even if it doesn’t become the highest-selling UFC pay-per-view event the year (although we think it will), UFC 264 isn’t one that any MMA fan wants to miss. The headliner follows the main event at UFC 257 in January, where Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier faced off for a second time after more than six years since their last encounter. In their rematch, Poirier avenged his previous defeat by dishing out McGregor’s first TKO loss.

Afterward, Poirier was positioned for a shot at the championship (he’s currently number one on the UFC lightweight roster and was briefly the interim champ) but passed it up in favor of a trilogy bout with McGregor. We can’t blame him, considering the paycheck that awaits — especially if he wins, which will all but guarantee that the Diamond’s next bout will be for the belt. If he loses, however, then the defeat will sting all the more; he’ll not only have lost two out of three against his rival, but he’ll have to claw his way back up to be in position for a title contest again.
