The first UFC PPV of 2021 is January 23rd and it should be a huge one. Whether it’s on Yas Island or Las Vegas, we know that the main event is a lightweight rematch between former two-division champ Conor McGregor and former interim lightweight champ Dustin Poirier. McGregor stopped Poirier in a round when they first met six years ago at featherweight, but there’s a lot more intrigue and high stakes in this rematch.
While we could see Michael Chandler vs. Justin Gaethje as a co-main event, that’s not official yet. We do know that Jessica Eye vs. Joanne Calderwood and Amanda Ribas vs. Marina Rodriguez are among the fights slated for this show.
