UFC 257 is a fitting event to serve as the first pay-per-view of 2021. It’s taking place at the newly built Etihad Arena on UFC Fight Island and headlining the main card is a lightweight rematch between Conor “The Notorious” McGregor (22-4) and Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier (26-6), who have not faced each other since their first encounter at UFC 178 in September 2014. McGregor took the victory there, stopping Poirier via TKO in the first round. More than six years have passed since then and Poirier now sits at number two on the UFC lightweight roster and fans are eager to see which of these top-ranked combatants will emerge victorious this time around. Although this headliner isn’t putting a championship belt on the line, the winner will almost certainly get a shot at the lightweight title for their next fight.
What you need to know about UFC 257
UFC 257 marks the return of Conor McGregor to UFC as he takes on Dustin Poirier, an opponent he previously defeated in a first-round knockout at UFC 178 in 2014, at the Etihad Arena on UFC Fight Island, with Dana White confirming that whoever wins the match will be in prime place to take a shot at the lightweight title, which will soon be up for grabs in the wake of champion Khabib Nurmagomedov’s recent retirement. If MccGregor wins this, it’s safe to say that the revered fighter will be out of retirement and stepping into the octagon for a few more events.
