The hugely anticipated Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier rematch is set to take place on January 24 at 4pm AEDT. 

The last time these two met in the octagon was back in 2014, an easy win for McGregor. Since then, Poirier has greatly improved, but will we same the same outcome?

Conor McGregor (MMA Record: 22-4-0)


'The Notorious' has not been seen in the octagon since January 2020, where he easily accounted for Donald Cerrone in the opening round, winning the fight by TKO in the first 40 seconds.

The Irishman is ranked number four in the world for a reason. 

Having already recorded a win over Poirier in the first meeting, McGregor will take confidence (as he always does) into the octagon. But will they still have that bitter rivalry that they showed in 2014?

There seems to be more respect between the two since that day, due to some charity work done together. But McGregor's competitive side should return for the this big fight, as was the case in the first meeting.

Dustin Poirier (MMA Record: 26-6-0)


Poirier has climbed the UFC lightweight rankings since his defeat to McGregor, now finding himself as the world number two in the division.

His most recent fight was in June 2020, where he fought Dan Hooker in what was a blood fest until the very end before Poirier won by unanimous decision.

He has fought 13 times since the McGregor bout for just two losses, one against the division champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Michael Johnson.

Poirier will bring his recent form to the ring and hope that he can go pound for pound with McGregor with a lot more experience since their last bout.
