The third blockbuster in an enthralling trilogy is due to take place on 10 July 2021 as Dustin Poirier faces off against Conor McGregor for the third time. A fight due to take place in the heart of the Ultimate Fighting Championship - Las Vegas.
It is expected that around 20,000 fight fans will be present to watch as the action happens - in the State of the Art T Mobile Arena. The President of the UFC finally confirmed the news on 21st April and it was met with excitement. Vegas is finally open for business.
The outcome of this fight will be huge for McGregor, after a shock defeat against the interim lightweight champion back in January in Abu Dhabi. Should he suffer another loss, it's difficult to see him moving forward, so this is definitely a career-defining moment for the Irishman. So, it's difficult to know which way it will go. With a career on the line, there is no doubt that this isn't a fight he will be prepared to lose. But can he win? He learned a lot of lessons in the last fight and will be better prepared to face the American this time - and how to get past those debilitating calf kicks that proved to be the deciding factor in the last fight. However, just as always, he goes in full of confidence.
Betting on the fight will certainly be interesting as both men will go in with their chests puffed, full of self-belief. Check out our range of betting odds for the biggest fight of the year - so even if McGregor doesn't come out a winner, you can!
