Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 LIVE: The Notorious has vowed to knock out his old rival in less than 60 SECONDS … so can he perform like he fights at UFC 257 for the first time in a year?
Conor McGregor makes his long-awaited return to the Octagon after a year of inactivity as he takes on former rival Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 on Fight Island, Abu Dhabi.
The Notorious is planning a return to the top of the lightweight division and a win over number two contender Poirier, 32, will almost certainly put him at the helm to fight for UFC gold later this year.
However, the Louisiana resident will try to upset the odds and prove his credentials as the man to ascend the throne of the recently retired Khabib Nurmagomedov. Poirier met McGregor in 2014 and will try to avenge that heavy loss at UFC 178.
