UFC 264 will be headlined by the highly anticipated trilogy between Dustin Poirier (27-6 MMA, 19-5 UFC) and Conor McGregor (22-5 MMA, 10-3 UFC). McGregor scored a first-round knockout of Poirier at UFC 178 in 2014, but Poirier was able to exact his revenge almost six years later when he knocked McGregor out in the second round at UFC 257 in January.

Contrary to their first bout, the lead-up to the rematch was rather amicable, with McGregor offering a generous donation to Poirier’s “Good Fight Foundation.” But according to Poirier, McGregor never ended up donating the money, which caused a Twitter spat between the two.

The back-and-forth resulted in McGregor threatening to fight somebody else instead, as numerous lightweights such as Rafael dos Anjos and Kevin Lee jumped at the opportunity to throw their names in the hat. Perhaps some gamesmanship by McGregor, but the promotion pushed forward with the announcement as the UFC returns in front of a live audience in Las Vegas this summer.

The UFC 264 lineup includes:

  • Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor

  • Gilbert Burns vs. Stephen Thompson

  • Jessica Eye vs. Jennifer Maia

  • Ryan Hall vs. Ilia Topuria

  • Omari Akhmedov vs. Brad Tavares

  • Jerome Rivera vs. Zhalgas Zhumagulov

  • Greg Hardy vs. Tai Tuivasa
