Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier undercard: Full line-up and schedule of UFC 257

Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier: Dana White gives update

Conor McGregor will be taking on Dustin Poirier at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi this weekend, in a rematch of the 2014 clash. But ahead of the main event, there’s a full schedule of undercard fights, featuring Dan Hooker and Michael Chandler.

McGregor has gone 12 months without a fight in the UFC, but will now re-enter the Octagon to take on Dustin Poirier.

The former two-division champion has previously beaten Poirier, as they met back in 2014.

McGregor ultimately won the fight at UFC 178 in one minute and 46 seconds.

But, the American has come back stronger since then, and will be hoping for some revenge over The Notorious.

Poirier has lost just two fights out of 12 since his defeat to McGregor.

One of those defeats came against reigning lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Poirier most recently beat Dan Hooker in June 2020, and is looking to build on the recent success.

McGregor is also looking to continue as he left off, after beating Donald Cerrone inside 40 seconds at UFC 246, one year ago.
