Poirier vs McGregor 3 preview and predictions
The legacy of both fighters is at stake here in this third and one presumes the final fight between the two, with many pundits tipping it to be the best fight of the trilogy. With both fighters having been beaten by Khabib Nurmagomedov in the past, neither fighter will want to have a deciding defeat in this trilogy bout as another black mark on their record.
While Poirier undoubtedly has the lesser profile of the two fighters, the Louisiana-born star is nevertheless ranked as the no.1 contender in the Lightweight division and boasts a 27-6 record. McGregor meanwhile sits at no.6 in the rankings with a 22-5 record, and, perhaps significantly, hasn’t won inside the octagon since January last year.
With the stakes high in a potential career-defining fight, we expect a cagey start resulting in a fight that’s likely to go three rounds. This could in turn suit Poirier, who has regularly marked himself out as one of the UFC’s most resilient performers.
Who is Conor McGregor?
Despite some recent high-profile defeats, Dublin-born McGregor remains MMA’s biggest star. The first fighter to hold two titles simultaneously, the former UFC 264 Lightweight and Featherweight champ is the biggest PPV draw in franchise history and the first to hold KO finishes in Featherweight, Lightweight, and Welterweight classes.
While his career began in 2008 and took to the UFC in 2013, the Irish fighter has fought in some of MMA’s biggest fights and is one of the most formidable opponents on the roster.
Who is Dustin Poirier?
Nicknamed ‘The Diamond’, the former interim Lightweight champion’s storied career has seen him claim wins over four former UFC champions.
Boasting an impressive 20 / 27 wins by knockout or submission. Poirier remains a force to be reckoned with, with his raw power set to once again provide a contrast to McGregor’s famed hard and fast approach to fights.

Poirier vs McGregor 3: recent results
The last meeting between these two fighters back in January marked both fighter’s last appearances in the Octagon.
That fight saw McGregor left stunned on his return from retirement at Abu Dhabi’s Fight Island.
While Notorious edged the first round, a flurry of punches saw Poirier seal a famous TKO knockout deep into round two.
UFC 264 full card and highlights
The Poirier vs McGregor 3 fight tops a stacked UFC 264 bill that also sees a highly-anticipated welterweight clash between title contenders Gilbert Burns and Stephen Thompson acts as the co-main event.
Burns will be looking to bounce back following the heartache of a title fight defeat to UFC 170-pound champ Kamaru Usman at UFC 258 earlier this year. The loss ended a six-fight win streak for “Durinho” and upended his rapid rise in the welterweight division. This match-up is by no means an easing back into the groove for Burns, with Thompson’s seemingly unmatchable striking skills likely to cause him serious trouble.
