2020 was a tough year for both the UFC and its fans, but 2021 is already off to a belter, with Conor McGregor stepping back into the Octagon for a rematch with Dustin Poirier.
Previously facing off back in 2014, Poirier was handed a first-round defeat at the hands of McGregor, who would go on to be crowned champion of two weight divisions at the same time, something that had not yet been achieved in the history of the UFC.
But fans are now being treated to a rematch, with both Poirier and McGregor gloving up for UFC 257, with the bout to take place on Sunday, January 24 in Abu Dhabi. Find out where to catch the action in this quick guide.
How can I watch the McGregor Vs. Poirier fight?
Both Kayo and Foxtel will be playing host to UFC 257, with coverage available through their pay-per-view channel, Main Event. For Foxtel customers, Main Event is channel 521, while both current and new Kayo subscribers can find it through the app homepage, although there’s an additional cost to watch the fight.
As the term ‘pay-per-view’ suggests, you’ll have to pay an additional charge on top of your regular subscription to tune into the McGregor Vs. Poirier, although you can sign up just for the fight through Kayo if you don’t already have a subscription. The McGregor Vs. Poirier fight will cost you $54.95 upfront regardless of whether you’re a new, existing or past customer, with new Kayo users given access to the sports streaming app until midnight on February 4, helping to take the sting out the cost.
What time does the McGregor Vs. Poirier fight start?
McGregor and Poirier’s fight will begin at 2pm (AEDT) on Sunday, January 24, with live coverage of the UFC 257 card beginning from 10:30am (AEDT). If you miss the live-stream, replays are available at both 6:30pm and 11pm (AEDT) on January 24, along with 6am, 10:30am and 3pm (AEDT) on Monday, January 25.
