The highly anticipated return of Conor McGregor is set to take place on January 23 when the former two-division champion meets an old rival in Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.

A lot has changed since McGregor stopped Poirier in the first round over six years ago at UFC 178. McGregor became the biggest star in the UFC while becoming the first fighter to hold world titles in two divisions simultaneously. Meanwhile, Poirier built himself back up with marquee wins over Eddie Alvarez, Max Holloway, Dan Hooker and Justin Gaethje while also claiming the interim UFC lightweight title.

There is a lot at stake when these two meet again as Khabib Nurmagomedov has retired and vacated the UFC lightweight title. The winner will certainly be near the front of the line for the title while the loser falls to the back.
