UFC 257 LIVE: Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 – fight updates from Abu Dhabi

Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 LIVE: The Notorious returns to the octagon for the first time in a year as he takes on old rival Poirier at UFC 257 on Fight Island

Conor McGregor makes his highly-anticipated return to the octagon after a year out of action as he takes on former rival Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 on Fight Island, Abu Dhabi.

The Notorious is plotting a return to the summit of the lightweight division and a win over number two contender Poirier, 32, will almost certainly put him in the driving seat to fight for UFC gold later this year. 

However, the Louisiana native will be looking to upset the odds and prove his credentials as the man to take the throne of recently-retired Khabib Nurmagomedov. Poirier met McGregor back in 2014 and will be looking to avenge that heavy loss at UFC 178.
