CONOR McGREGOR’S THIRD fight against Dustin Poirier has been confirmed for 10 July in Las Vegas.

Earlier this week there had been fresh doubts the bout would go ahead due to messages posted by the Dubliner on Twitter.

In a post directed at Poirier on Monday, McGregor said: “The fight is off btw. I’m going to fight someone else on the 10th.”

However UFC President Dana White has today officially confirmed the fight will take place as the headline match-up of UFC 264 in the T-Mobile Arena on 10 July.

White also confirmed that the venue will be open to a full capacity crowd of 20,000 for the event.

Tickets for the fight are due to go on sale later this week.

McGregor is without a win in the UFC since January 2020, and lost to Poirier in Abu Dhabi in January of this year, the American winning by technical knockout in round two.
