UFC 264 is an upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) event organized by the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The date of the event is July 10, 2021.
This was announced by UFC President Dana White, who has also announced a number of fights, including a rematch between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. Remind that the Irishman lost last time - Poirier knocked out McGregor at UFC 257 in January this year. But this couple met on the octagon before that: in 2015, Conor knocked out Poirier.
Also, according to White, a fight is planned with the participation of Justin Gajee (Gage). The fight with this fighter will either be a safety one for the meeting McGregor vs Poirier, or as the main event of the evening.
“The plan is this - the fight between Conor and Poirier will take place on July 10, I hope so. We all hope so. As for Gaethje, we can arrange for him to fight in co-mainvent, or he will simply insure the main fight, ”said the UFC president. We add that the event is planned to be held at the "T-Mobile Arena" in Las Vegas, which means that it will be held with spectators in the stands.
Also, at UFC 264, there will likely be a fight between Russian middleweight Omari Akhmedov and American fighter Brad Tavares.
