UFC 257 takes place Saturday at Etihad Arena on Yas Island. In the main event, a rematch years in the making as former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor returns after a one year layoff to face the man he defeated six years ago in Dustin “Diamond” Poirier. MyMMANews.com will have all your UFC 257 results below.
The main card airs on ESPN+ pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
Yesterday a fight was put together on extremely short notice when Arman Tsarukyan and Matt Frevola agreed to meet at a catchweight of 157-pounds. Frevola was originally scheduled to face Ottman Azaitar who was released from the UFC after he and his camp broke UFC Fight Island bubble protocols. Tsarukyan was originally scheduled to meet Nasrat Haqparast who did not weigh in and was ruled ineligible for competition.
