Is it possible to watch Conor McGregor versus Dustin Poirier for free on UFC 257?
Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier square off in Abu Dhabi this weekend for UFC 257. Express Sport has all the facts on how to watch the game live.
Conor McGregor faces Dustin Poirier in a rematch at UFC 257, following the Irishman’s first-round victory in 2014. Despite the Russian’s retirement announcement, a rematch with Khbiab Nurmagomedov remains a possibility.
However, according to the UFC president, a McGregor victory against Poirier might lead to a rematch with Khabib.
“Do you think Conor is the perfect opponent for you? Yeah. Listen, whatever you think of Conor McGregor personally, he’s not only one of the best in the world, but one of the finest to ever do it, and he’s as focused as he’s ever been right now,” White added.
“After the Poirier fight, I’m not sure if this is going to be the same Conor.
“Conor goes [up and down], but how do you not do Khabib versus Conor again if this Conor stays around for the next year?
“The division is filled with difficult fighters, and if Khabib retires, whatever the highest-ranked guy is at the time will face Conor if Conor defeats Poirier and fight for the title, I’m sure.”
Following his 40-second stoppage of Donald Cerrone in January 2020, McGregor returns to the octagon for the first bout in a year.
Poirier last fought in June, winning a unanimous decision against Dan Hooker.
Hooker will also compete on Fight Island at UFC 257, taking on Michael Chandler.
Unfortunately, the answer is no. In the United Kingdom, McGregor vs Poirier is a pay-per-view event.
The event will be broadcast live on BT Sport Box Office, and spectators can purchase tickets for £19.95.
The preliminary card, on the other hand, will be broadcast on BT Sport 1, which some fans will be able to see for free.
On Sunday, the prelims will be available from 1am to 3am GMT.
