Conor McGregor will compete in the Octagon for the third time this weekend, as he faces off against Dustin Poirier. Both combatants have won one of their prior fights against each other, with Saturday’s bout attempting to complete a remarkable trilogy.
In January of this year, McGregor stepped out of retirement for the third time to meet Poirier at Fight Island.
The Notorious dominated the first round, but faltered in the second.
Poirier, dubbed “The Diamond,” landed a flurry of jabs two and a half minutes into the round to secure a knockout victory.
McGregor had hoped that a victory against Poirier would lead to a world title fight, but his loss has dropped him down the UFC rankings.
The two first met in the Octagon in 2014, with McGregor emerging victorious.
After hitting a strong left-hand blow on the American, he won the bout in under two minutes.
Poirier, on the other hand, has come back considerably stronger after that defeat, winning 11 of his following 14 fights.
Meanwhile, McGregor has won three of his last six fights.
