Ahead of the rematch, UFC has released the free fight video to their first encounter, which happened way back at UFC 178 on September 27, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The lead up to the first fight was rather bitter, as McGregor had just came in as the promotion’s biggest talker before turning into the sports biggest star.
Poirier, meanwhile, was already in the promotion for some time and was trying to shock the world.
What transpired was a first round technical knockout win for “Notorious,” which only took 105 seconds. Now, McGregor will look to go up 2-0 on Poirier on his way to another shot at the title.
Will history repeat itself in a few weeks?
