    Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier are set to go to war once more in a mouth-watering trilogy bout at UFC 264 in the early hours of Sunday morning.  'The Notorious' was too slick for his opponent when the pair first met in 2014, claiming a stunning first-round knockout victory at UFC 178.  However, the tables were turned in their January rematch at UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi, with Poirier displaying a kickboxing masterclass to claim a second-round TKO victory and dash McGregor's already unlikely hopes of a rematch with the retired Khabib Nurmagomedov.  Now, the pair go head-to-head for a third and likely final time, with the winner then in line for a title shot against current lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, who won the strap with a second-round TKO of three-time Bellator champion Michael Chandler in May.   With the match-up now swiftly approaching, Sportsmail takes you through everything you need to know.  Dustin Poirier (left) and Conor McGregor (right) are set to complete their trilogy this weekend Poirier claimed an emphatic stoppage victory in their rematch at UFC 257 back in January...
    After capturing the lightweight title at UFC 262, what’s next for Charles Oliveira? Daniel Cunningham May 18, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditIn the main event of UFC 262, we saw a new lightweight champion crowned. Charles Oliveira (31-8, 1 NC) and Michael Chandler (22-6) went head-to-head for the vacant UFC lightweight champion. Last year at UFC 254, Khabib Nurmagomedov (29-0) said that he was walking away from the sport. The undisputed lightweight champion lost his father last year and after his last successful title defense, he decided it was time to hang it up. After Khabib retired, the UFC‘s lightweight division needed a new champion. After Dana White confirmed Khabib’s UFC departure a couple of months ago, the promotion booked Oliveira and Chandler for the vacant title. Charles Oliveira’s UFC story has been something to behold. At one point, Oliveira was 10-8 with the promotion and looked like one of those fighters who would never truly reach his potential. He bounced back and forth between lightweight and featherweight before ultimately settling at 155 pounds....

    Nate Diaz says he’s ready to return to the Octagon, but there are some caveats involved. Diaz has not competed since his doctor’s TKO loss to Jorge Masvidal in the UFC 244 main event in November 2019. One of the most popular fighters in the UFC has two opponents in mind for his return to action, which would include Dustin Poirier. in position 1-A. Poirier is coming off a second-round knockout victory over Conor McGregor, his longtime rival to Diaz, in the main event of last month’s UFC 257 event. While “El Diamante” is certainly a fight Diaz would be up for, he believes the reason the main event played out the way it did was different from how most viewed the fight. «I think it was less Dustin doing something great and more with Conor fucking. That is my personal opinion. I think he was wearing them. I found it nice in the bag. I thought [McGregor] he was screwed. I think he still makes the same old mistakes. The mistakes Diaz was referring to were related to McGregor...
    Bezos and Bloomberg among top 50 US charity donors for 2020 Marjorie Taylor Greenes laughably twisted logic to explain away the January 6 riot Nate Diaz angles for Dustin Poirier or Charles Oliveira fight at welterweight Hopefully edging closer to a UFC return, Nate Diaz has two potential opponents in mind. © Provided by MMAJunkie Diaz (20-12 MMA, 15-10 UFC), who hasn’t competed since a third-round doctor’s stoppage loss to Jorge Masvidal in November 2019, has made it clear that he wants matchups against either Dustin Poirier or Charles Oliveira – but at welterweight, not lightweight where both men are top contenders. Poirier (27-6 MMA, 19-5 UFC) and Diaz were booked to meet at UFC 230 in 2018, but the fight was scrapped after Poirier was injured. “The Diamond” went on to face Max Holloway instead and captured the interim lightweight title in April 2019. Although he wasn’t able to defeat undisputed champ Khabib Nurmagomedov five months later, Poirier now is riding a wave of momentum having outlasted Dan Hooker in a 2020 “Fight of the Year” contender last...
    Streaking UFC lightweight contender Charles Oliveira has an interesting game plan set up come January 23, 2021, at UFC 257. ‘Do Bronx’ explained that he’s looking to insert himself into the conversation with the winner of the main event. The card is headlined by Conor McGregor, who makes his return in a highly anticipated rematch from 2014 against Dustin Poirier. Oliveira’s stock is at an all-time high as he’s fresh off a win against former interim champion Tony Ferguson. The Brazilian stomped all over ‘El Cucuy’ and has become the ‘nightmare’ match-up for Khabib Nurmagomedov in some fans’ eyes. His fighting style certainly leaves very little room for error for his opponents, especially if it hits the canvas. Charles Oliveira set to shoot his shot at UFC 257 Oliveira spoke to AG Fight and explained he wanted to be cage-side in Abu Dhabi for the UFC 257 fight card. While the fight he wants off the bat is against Khabib Nurmagomedov, a call-out of the winner of Poirier vs McGregor is more viable. Being present in person at cage-side certainly...
    After dominating Tony Ferguson at UFC 256, what’s next for Charles Oliveira? By: Daniel Cunningham December 15, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThis past Saturday evening in the co-main event of UFC 256, Charles Oliveira (30-8, 1 NC) took on Tony Ferguson (25-5). Ferguson was looking to bounce back after his last loss while Oliveira was looking to continue his winning streak. Heading into UFC 256, Oliveira had won seven fights in a row. However, it was the way he won those seven fights which stood out. Oliveira had finished all seven of his opponents leading into UFC 256.
