Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier trilogy at UFC 264 is finally going to take place in T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, on July 10. The Notorious confirmed that he signed up an agreement today.
Previously ESPN’s Ariel Helwani reported on March 29 that the fight was “close to be finalized.” However, there had been growing speculation in the last few days that Conor was about to cancel the battle over an online feud on his pledge to donate $500,000 to Diamond’s charity.
The war of words of wars is now over, and the rivals agreed for a grand showdown on July 10. This morning Ariel Helwani confirmed the deal via a Twitter post. “Conor x Dustin Poirier 3 is official for July 10 at T-Mobile Arena,” Helwani wrote.

McGregor told @arielhelwani moments ago:
“I signed my bout agreement this morning. I’m going to rip this game a new asshole July 10th. The Mac is back in Sin City! Full house!”

Conor McGregor to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 264
Following their rematch at UFC 257, the Notorious and Poirier are now confirmed to faceoff in a trilogy. After months of negotiation, the rivals agreed to battle on July 10, and it is expected to be a colossal showdown.
The UFC President Dana White is looking forward to hold the fight in Las Vegas and expecting to get 15,000 fans to crowd despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
However, it is expected that the trilogy fight will serve to put an end to the long-standing saga between the Irishman and Poirier. The rivalry started back in 2014, with McGregor ending the UFC 178 meeting via TKO in just 106 seconds.
Later they met after six years in January 2021, and The Diamond won the bout via a second-round knockout.
Nevertheless, McGregor is eagerly looking for a win as he will have a chance to fight for UFC lightweight title next year. In recent weeks, McGregor has been in full hype mode for the July 10 matchup, and he is aiming for a win.
