It is noted that for the first time since March 2020, the competition passed with the audience.

Poirier defeated by TKO in the second round.

Battle in the air division did not own title status. However, as if UFC President Dane White noted, the winner of the fight will count on the championship belt, which Khabib Nurmagomedov will now have. In October 2020, he overpowered American Justin Gaethje, announcing his retirement. However, the belt in air weight all remained with him equally. Belatedly, Nurmagomedov put the opportunity to resume his career.

McGregor is 32 years old, his past battle passed in January 2020 at UFC 246 – the Irishman knocked out American Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds. McGregor played 27 matches, scoring 22 wins and suffering five defeats.

Poirier is also 32 years old, on account of his 27 victories, six defeats, one more duel did not take place.
