According to Poirier's head coach, Mike Brown, Conor McGregor and Dustin Porier's next trilogy finale might be the UFC fight to end all UFC bouts.
McGregor (22-5) and Poirier (27-6) will face toe-to-toe for the third time on July 10th, 2021 at UFC 264, coming to a close a trilogy that has captivated the fans for over a half-decade.
With both combatants holding a victory, there will be a lot on the line in the Octagon this summer, and Brown believes it might be the greatest event the company has ever produced.
The "Greatest PPV of All-Time"
In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Brown revealed some insights into Camp Poirier in the lead-up to the event, as well as his opinion on both the American fighter's choice to rematch the Notorious Irishman and the commercial potential of the bout itself.
Poirier firmly secured his status as the top contender for the gold in the UFC lightweight division after knocking out McGregor during their first rematch at UFC 257 back in January.
Since Khabib Nurmagomedov's announced retirement from the promotion and the sport in spring 2021, the division has been in turmoil. Rather than fighting for the title against Michael Chandler or Charles Oliveira, Porier preferred to take one last bout with his long-time foe to settle the score once and for all.( Collapse )
