UFC 264: Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor: The Big Fight Preview - everything you need to know

The time for talking is over.

The intensity demonstrated during Thursday's press conference and Friday's weigh-in will boil over Saturday night, when Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor headline UFC 264 in their third and perhaps final fight.

McGregor sparked the rivalry back in September 2014, when he starched Poirier via a first-round TKO on his road to international superstardom, including becoming the UFC's first double champion two years later. Poirier, however, returned the favor this past January, when he left McGregor in a heap of pain in the Octagon for a second-round TKO.

Who will win the trilogy fight and position himself for a possible shot at lightweight champion Charles Oliveira next?
