Dustin Poirier is coming off of a unanimous decision victory against UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, who was moving up in weight class to challenge for the interim title at UFC 236 which took place in State Farm Arena in April.

On the other hand, Khabib is coming off of a submission victory against Conor McGregor at UFC 229 last October. That fight sold the highest number of PPV buys in the history of the UFC.
