The point he's making is that it would be a reminder of the last fight and how that went.

Maybe it has no impact...maybe it has some.

Poirier doing it would have zero impact.

I'm Ron Burgundy?

I don't necessarily agree it definitely does or definitely doesn't. It might.

I could be wrong, but their first fight is a distant memory as any barometer here...and Dustin seemed to cave very easily in fight 1....caught in an awkward place, maybe...the shots that did him in seemed to glance....

Both similar sized.....Conor is NOT the same fighter he was a few years ago. He is slower, not as sharp....older, and likely has not lived a real clean athlete's life these past few years.

Dustin seems a stronger and more mature and robust fighter compared to years ago.

Interesting match, where a Dustin win should no way be a shock

How can anyone say if he's the same fighter anymore or not?

We haven't seen him in a year when he ran through Cowboy and he seems to have done nothing but train since.

He's at the age now too were he should be at physical peak.

Would love to see a proper fight but hard to see past McGregor finishing it early. The UFC YouTube productions do a good job of making it seem as if it'll be closer this time around but that's their purpose i guess.

Just checked and the card will not be on BT Sports as usual, the prelims will be on it but that’s it.

It’s €30 through Sky website, bit saucy as I’m only really interested in the co-main and main event.

Don’t like to stream anymore as it always cuts out multiple times and typically during the main event.

I know it’s McGregor and I haven’t missed any of his fights, seen him live at the Dublin event but still don’t know of I will get it.

Listening to McG with Helwani he seems less intense, more relaxed, don’t know if it’s a good sign.
The first time they fought it was at 145, I wonder if DP will be able to better take McG’s shots with the extra weight.

How to watch UFC 257 in Ireland
The main card of UFC 257 will be exclusively broadcast by BT Sport Box Office.
So is the fight going to be at 9am local time or have I got my maths wrong.

I know they want to suit US tv but 9am just seems weird
