Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier PPV price CONFIRMED as pair get set for trilogy fight at UFC 264 on BT Sport Box Office
FANS will have to shell out £19.95 to watch Conor McGregor's trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier on July 10.
Love him or hate him, McGregor remains one of the most box office names in all of sport – and his latest fight is set to capture the imagination of fans worldwide once again.
UFC 264, headline by The Notorious, will be broadcast on BT Sport Box Office.
And fans will have access to the main card for £19.95.
All eyes will be on McGregor, as he aims to take the trilogy with Poirier, and elevate himself back into the UFC lightweight picture in the process.
The winner is almost certain to get a title shot against Charles Oliveira.
But the Brazilian isn't concerned.
He recently said: "I don’t choose my fights. I will be ready. I really believe in my jiu-jitsu against either of them, but something tells me that if I fought them, I would knock them both out. I’m feeling fine.
"Today, I’m not afraid to fight these guys. The funny thing is that when I start fighting, they try to put me down, to do what I know best.
"This shows how much I’m evolving on my feet. It will definitely be a great fight. Charles, today, is not a jiu-jitsu fighter.

"He’s a complete fighter, both standing and on the ground, but I think everyone will be knocked out."
Either way, any McGregor fight is set to sell well.
The Irishman is a prolific PPV seller, and holds the record for the highest ever number of buys for an MMA fight – with his UFC 229 bad blood battle with Khabib Nurmagomedov pulling in 2.4m sales.
His January return against Poirier on Fight Island, which was also priced at £19.95 in the UK, sold 1.6m, while his 2016 rematch with Nate Diaz pulled in a similar number.
July 10's prelims, set to feature former Ultimate Fighter winner Ryan Hall's return against Ilia Topuria, will be available to watch on UFC Fight Pass.
Sean O'Malley will kick-off the main card against Kris Moutinho at 3am, with McGregor's bout with Poirier expected to begin at around 6am.
PPV buyers will also be treated to Gilbert Burns' welterweight clash with Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson, as well as the heavyweight bout between Tai Tuivasa and Greg Hardy.
