In the night’s main event, lightweights Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor squared off for a third time. The pair’s first encounter came at UFC 178, with the Irishman McGregor scoring a first-round knockout in a bout that took place in the featherweight division. In their second meeting at UFC 257 in January, Poirier exacted revenge, earning a second-round knockout. They looked to settle the score in the much-hyped rubber match.
The event kicked off with a preliminary-card stream on ESPN+ at 6 p.m. ET. The action switched to ESPN for the televised prelims at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card airing at 10 p.m. ET via ESPN+ pay-per-view.
