In order to have a shot at the title, you have to be in line for it. That’s what is at stake during the main event of UFC 257 tonight as the lightweight bout between Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier and “The Notorious” Conor McGregor headlines the main card. The winner of this fight is rumored to be in line to receive a title shot in their next fight, so this battle means a lot for both fighters. You can watch all of the mayhem and madness of UFC 257, exclusively on ESPN+ tonight.
The main card takes place at 10 pm ET while the prelims begin at 6:30 pm ET. This will be the second time that Poirier and McGregor will do battle in the Octagon. Last time, at UFC 178 in 2014, McGregor won by 1st round TKO. So, Poirier is out for revenge and looking to hopefully reclaim his Lightweight championship belt after this victory. McGregor, also looking for another Lightweight title, has barely gone to a decision since that fight, having knocked out each opponent in a victory since 2016. Poirier is 10-2-1 since that loss and is currently ranked #2 in the Lightweight class.
Other fights on the main card include Hooker vs. Chandler in a men’s Lighweight bout, Eye vs. Calderwood in a women’s Flyweight bout, Frevola vs. Azaitar in a men’s Lightweight bout, and Rodriguez vs. Ribas in a women’s Strawweight bout.
