UFC 264 kicks off this Saturday night from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, July 10th. There is a five-bout main card highlighted by a lightweight fight that will close a trilogy of bouts between No. 1 Dustin Poirier and No. 4 Conor McGregor. But there are other worthy fights worth watching as well.
No. 2 Gilbert “Durinho” Burns will take on No. 4 Stephen Thompson in a good one at welterweight. Burns gets back in the cage after his loss to the champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 258, and it means he enters as the underdog at +126 despite being the higher-ranked fighter. Thompson is 38-years-old fighter has a professional fighting record of 16-4-1, but has been on the bench since beating Geoff Neal by decision at UFC Fight Night 183 in December.
Also former NFL star and heavyweight Greg Hardy will be on the card, looking to recover from his last loss to Marcin Tybura in January. Hardy is now 4-3 in a UFC octagon, and will look to continue improving against Tai Tuivasa, who enters as the -137 favorite to Hardy’s +110 underdog.
The early prelims will start at 5:45 p.m. ET with the prelims at 8:00 p.m. ET. The main card is expected to begin at 10 p.m. ET with the McGregor-Poirier fight to close it out.
