The UFC 264 live stream gives is the record of The Notorious One, who’s looking to break the tie against a long-time rival. Yes, this card is headlined by Conor McGregor’s return to the octagon, and he is hoping McGregor vs Poirier 3 will end differently than his last match.
And it seems like McGregor couldn’t wait. After their fight this past January, McGregor was handed a 180-day medical suspension, due to losing that match by getting knocked out in the second round. So, it’s six months later, and McGregor’s back to avenge that loss.
This match is the third of the trilogy between the brash Irishman and Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier, and if you think this one will end by TKO too, you’ve clearly got an eye for history. McGregor won by a round 1 TKO in their first meeting, back in 2014 at UFC 178.

Poirier could have followed their last match with a fight for the vacated lightweight title after Khabib Nurmagomedov retired. Instead, he chose the idea of a big-money rubber-match against McGregor.
This match has a bit of drama going into it, as Tuesday saw McGregor post what would appear to be a screenshot of an Instagram DM request from Poirier’s wife Jolie Porter, on his twitter account. It was likely a fake, and we’ve yet to see official word from Poirier regarding it. Better to ignore these shenanigans, we guess.
