UFC 178

The UFC announced a big fight, UFC featherweight contenders Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will square off in an under card bout at UFC 178.

Conor McGregor (15-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) tries to continue his ten fight winning streak and get that very elusive 11 fight win streak against Cole Miller. In his last four fights this is how his history goes. He beat Dave Hill via rear naked choke back in June of 2012 to win the vacant Cage Warriors FC Featherweight Championship.

McGregor’s next fight was for another weight class championship against Ivan Buchinger via knockout back in December of 2012. He left the promotion to make his UFC debut with a knockout of the night win over Marcus Brimage in April of 2013. Finally, he beat Max Holloway via unanimous decision in August. He then beat Diego Brandao at UFC Fight Night 46 in July of 2014.

UFC 178 takes place Sept. 27 in Las Vegas, Nevada live on pay-per-view. The main event will be a rematch from a classic fight between Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson.

Here is how the rest of the card looks like:
