My extended promo for Poirier vs McGregor 2 is finally here, enjoy.
7:39 The way back
The rematch between Conor McGregor (22-4) and Dustin Poirier (26-6, 1 NC) is official for January 23, 2021 at the Flash Forum on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Poirier and McGregor had their first fight at UFC 178 in 2014 where McGregor won by first-round knockout.
This rematch initially came about in September when the two tried to set up the bout for charity, until the promotion offered them an official match.
Since their first meeting at UFC 178, both Poirier and McGregor have realized UFC gold. Mcgregor dethroned the featherweight king Jose Aldo in 2015, and the lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in 2016. McGregor relinquished both titles before attempting to defend them. After leaving the sport for almost two years to box Floyd Mayweather Jr., the irishman returned to take on the lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. The russian submitted McGregor in the forth round with a neck crank and added another win to his perfect record. The only fight McGregor has had after this was against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 earlier this year. This was a near perfect performance by McGregor as he violently finished Cerrone only 40 seconds into the first round.
After Dustin Poirier's loss to Conor McGregor in 2014, he has fought 13 times and has established himself as a legend and future hall of famer in the sport. Poirier managed to win the interim lightweight after beating Max Holloway at UFC 236 in 2019. He then went on to lose the unification bout to the lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 242 the same year. At UFC Vegas 4 in June, Poirier came back strong by beating Dan Hooker after a five round war.
On Jan. 23 we head back to Fight Island for UFC 257, but Dustin Poirier and McGregor will not be fighting for any gold. It is still unclear what Khabib Nurmagomedov ultimately decides to do moving forward. After his most recent successfull title defense against the former interim champion Justin Gaethje (UFC 254), he announced his retirement right after the fight. However Dana white is not in a rush of putting the lightweight title up for grabs yet.
