poirier vs mcgregor 2

This weekend, the first blockbuster fight of 2021 will take place as 2nd-ranked Dustin Poirier (USA) and 4th-ranked Conor McGregor (Ireland) go head-to-head for the first time since McGregor's easy win over Poirier in the featherweight division back in 2014. However, Poirier has improved significantly since the pair's first bout, so punters can expect a much more even fight (though McGregor is still tipped as the favourite).

UFC 257 start time

The main event will take place on Sunday at 2:00pm AEST, with prelims starting at 12:00pm and early prelims at 10:30am.

If you want to catch the weigh-in, you'll have to tune in to ESPN on Friday from 11:55PM.
