How to Watch UFC 257: Poirier vs. McGregor 2 – Live Stream, Start Time, Fight Card, Betting Odds

By Gabriela Vatu / January 21, 2021

We're finally getting a rematch between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor, a rematch in the making for over six years. UFC 257 will put the two together in the fighting ring in a lightweight bout.

Conor McGregor has certainly had his ups and downs, retiring, then coming back, then retiring again, then making another comeback. Even now, he's under investigation after being detained in mid-September after allegations of attempted sexual assault. Nonetheless, it looks like he's going head to head with Dustin Poirier.

The two fought back in September 2014, with the event ending after 1 minute and 46 seconds with a TKO for McGregor.
