Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor face off ahead of their UFC 257 bout.

The rivalry between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor will be settled on July 10 at UFC 264.

The event is set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a live audience of over 20,000 fans.

It is the third meeting between the two. In 2014 at UFC 178, they competed at featherweight and McGregor finished Poirier in the first round by way of TKO.

The fighters rematched over six years later, headlining January’s UFC 257 in a lightweight contest. “The Diamond” got the upper hand in that fight, defeating McGregor via second-round TKO.

The trilogy fight is scheduled to take place at 155 pounds again as both men are ranked in the division. Poirier is No. 1 and “Notorious” is No. 6. There are major divisional stakes as the winner will likely receive a title shot against either UFC 262’s Charles Oliveira or Michael Chandler.

However, Poirier is willing to meet at welterweight to settle the rivalry.

“Lets do it at 170lbs,” Poirier tweeted Sunday morning. “3 fights 3 different weight classes.”

McGregor has fought at welterweight three times in the UFC. Poirier has never competed at 170 pounds in his professional career.
