Dustin Poirier missing to Conor McGregor at UFC 178 back in late 2014, and in purchase for the promotion to market you a pay-per-perspective (PPV) rematch, it has to show why their next go-round might go significantly in another way than their initially.
In the decades that followed his knockout decline to “Notorious,” the 31 year-old Poirier racked up a 10-2 history with 6 unpleasant finishes. McGregor, 32, has place collectively a 6-2 run with five stoppages — but has only competed twice about the past four many years.
No concern his victory around Donald Cerrone was extraordinary, but we still really do not know what form of gasoline tank “Notorious” has at this phase of his career, while it may well not issue if he connects in opposition to Poirier like he did in their first assembly.
Their light-weight bout headlines the UFC 257 event on Jan. 27 on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi and is probable to develop the subsequent in line for the 155-pound title, which is predicted to be vacated by Khabib Nurmagomedov in the coming months.
