The location of their bout has yet to be confirmed but the 22-4-0 McGregor will be back in the octagon for a fight for the first time since January of this year. This past Summer, Conor retired from the sport for a second time after initially doing so in 2016 after UFC 196.
The 26-6-0 Dustin Poirier scored a win over Dan Hooker at UFC Fight Night in June. This will be McGregor and Poirier’s second fight as their first occurred in 2014 with McGregor emerging victorious.
