It’s UFC 257 fight day!
Former two-division champion Conor McGregor rematches former interim lightweight champ Dustin Poirier in a rematch of their 2014 bout. McGregor stopped Poirier in the opening round of their first fight, but now they’ll rematch at 155 lbs.
The co-main pits former Bellator lightweight king Michael Chandler against Dan Hooker, while Jessica Eye and Joanne Calderwood meet in an important women’s flyweight contest. With Ottman Azaitar getting booted out of the UFC for sheer stupidity, Matt Frevola vs. Arman Tsarukyan is the featured ESPN prelim while Andrew Sanchez vs. Makhmud Muradov gets bumped from early prelims to the PPV. The opening main card bout is between strawweights Amanda Ribas and Marina Rodriguez.
