Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor will fight for a third time this summer!
According to ESPN, Poirer has signed his contract to fight McGregor at UFC 264 on July 10th to complete the trilogy. McGregor is said to have verbally agreed to the fight a few weeks ago.
Poirier defeated McGregor in January via second-round TKO in a rematch of a 2014 fight. Back then, at UFC 178, McGregor defeated Poirier via first-round TKO.
The trilogy, which is expected to be one of the most lucrative in UFC history, is slated to serve as a five-round main event at 155 pounds, just like the rematch was. The original fight took place at 145 pounds.
There's a lot riding on this rematch for McGregor. Another loss might be it for the superstar's career. He still puts asses in the seats, but at some point you have to string a few wins together.
