Poirier vs McGregor 3: before the fight

Let's not mince words - It's 1-1 to both fighters. 

There may be no belt on the line in this upcoming bout, but there's something more substantial on the fight card for both men than just championship gold - legacy. 

Both men are knockout experts in the Octagon, a fact that's been proven time and time again - not only against each other but in their ascent through the mid-card and up to main event status from within the UFC. Not to say that either fighter is a slouch when it comes to their technical abilities, though they do differ significantly despite their striking prowess. 

As it's clear from watching either man fight, it's not just their boxing that gives them an edge in the competition. McGregor is known to utilize Tae Kwon Do and Capoeira kicks to keep his opponents guessing. 

Poirer's biggest strength is his groundwork - having achieved a black belt in BJJ back in December 2017. He, subsequently, has won 7 (of his 27 total) victories via submission; the predominant way that McGregor has sustained his prior losses apart from the aforementioned knockout by The Diamond's hands.

UFC 264 Fight Card: who's fighting on the night? 

It's not all about McGregor and Poirier's rematch as there are some equally exciting fights happening on the night too, including the welterweight bout of Gilbert Burns vs Stephen Thompson, where the two men - standing at 5ft10 and 6ft respectively and both weighing 170lbs - will see the victor in a good place for No. 1 contender for a chance at the taking on Kamaru Usman for the title later down the line.  

The records for Burns and Thompson are both more than respectable - the two fighters are heading into UFC 264 with only 4 losses even - so it's very much all to play where it matters. As to who will cause the most upset on the night, that remains to be seen. Definitely not a fight to sleep on!
