When is McGregor vs Poirier 3? Date, start time and odds for UFC rematch

Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will look to settle their rivalry this summer as they go head-to-head for the third time, with the score one-apiece heading into their trilogy bout.

In 2014, McGregor stopped Poirier in the first round of the pair’s featherweight meeting, before the American exacted his revenge over the Irishman in January this year, knocking out McGregor in the second round of a lightweight contest.

The rivals’ second clash was a main event, and they will again meet in a headline lightweight bout when they top the card at UFC 264.

While there were plenty of niceties between McGregor and Poirier ahead of their contest in January, the bad blood from their initial meeting seems to be bubbling again. Poirier hit out at McGregor for failing to deliver on his promise to donate $500,000 to the American’s charity, with ‘Notorious’ taking exception to ‘The Diamond’s words.
