What to Watch as McGregor and Poirier Fight at U.F.C. 257


McGregor campaigned to return to the octagon however could not line up a bout until a primary occasion against Poirier came together. But the benefit, for the U.F.C., of McGregor’s yearlong lack is that it has been able to sell the fight– arranged for early Sunday in Abu Dhabi, or Saturday night in the United States– as a resurgence. And the U.F.C. is paying McGregor and Poirier as if their primary occasion is an unique occasion.Last year, McGregor earned a $3 million guarantee for blowing out Cerrone, who was guaranteed$200,000. Poirier lost to Nurmagomedov, however a lot of fighters do that– including McGregor.In 2014, Poirier lost to McGregor, then a rising U.F.C. star, by first-round knockout.
