Who doesn’t love a trilogy? Back to the Future, The Godfather, and now McGregor vs. Poirier. The two originally squared off in 2014 at UFC 178, with McGregor earning the victory via first-round knockout. The rematch took place earlier this year at UFC 257, where Poirier won thanks to a second-round knockout. Later tonight, the man known as “Notorious” (22-5-0) and the fighter referred to as “the Diamond” (27-6-0) meet in the rubber match.
