Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier Is Official, Will Take Place On July 10th

It has been announced that the Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier trilogy fight will officially happen on July 10th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC president Dana White dropped the news via social media on Wednesday afternoon, where he confirmed that the venue will be at 100% capacity, which means 20,000 fans will be able to attend.

The news comes just 24 hours after McGregor claimed his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier was off.

The former lightweight champion posted a furious tweet claiming that he will face someone else at UFC 264 but of course, those claims were clearly false after White announce the fight would indeed happen.

He tweeted: "You're ripped you inbred hillbilly. Why do you wink with your ears?

"You f**king brain dead hillbilly. 500k with no plan in place. Ye hang tight. Fool. You must be new to money. The fight is off btw. I'm going to fight someone else on the 10th. Good luck on your old contract kid."

Earlier this week, Dustin Poirier accused McGregor of failing to live up to his promise of donating $500,000 to the American's charity The Good Fight Foundation.

'The Diamond' publicly outed his rival on Twitter for allegedly not paying up, meanwhile a furious McGregor quickly hit back at Poirier, using the fact they are set to have a third fight as part of the reason behind his thinking.

The former two weight UFC champion also responded by claiming he wouldn't donate because he wasn't told how the money was being used.

Who will come out on top in July? It appears this time around, things will be far-from-friendly when the pair meet in Vegas.
