Few events move the needle as seismically as the sight of Conor McGregor striding into battle and the Irishman returns to capture fight fans' imagination once more with a mouthwatering match-up at UFC 257 this month.

Former foe Dustin Poirier is the man who will be waiting in the opposite corner on January 23 armed with dreams of avenging his 2014 defeat against 'The Notorious'.
