The UFC has once again released another incredible promo for the highly anticipated trilogy between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor at UFC 264 — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Incredible UFC 264 promo released
The main event of UFC 264 is one of the most highly anticipated fights in MMA history where Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor meet for the third and most likely final time.
Even though there is no world title on the line for Poirier and McGregor to win, that has certainly not diminished any hype surrounding the fight.
The high anticipation for the fight has been accelerated once more as the UFC has released yet another incredible promo package in the build-up to the event in July.
Check out the promo below.
Has this promo made you even more hyped for UFC 264?
Louis Smolka withdraws from UFC 264 bout against Sean O'Malley
Sean O'Malley vs Louis Smolka was supposed to be the main card opener at UFC 264 but that fight will no longer be happening as Smolka has withdrawn from the fight due to an undisclosed injury.

UFC is hoping to keep O’Malley on the card, I’m told, but no new opponent locked in yet.
The UFC are still hoping to have O'Malley fight on the card but with the event just over a week away, it may be hard to find an opponent for O'Malley.

When the news broke yesterday that Francis Ngannou would not be fighting in September against Derrick Lewis, there was a lot of confusion in the MMA world as to why the fight will not go ahead.
The UFC instead has booked Derrick Lewis vs Ciryl Gane for the interim heavyweight title.
After the news of the fight broke, Francis Ngannou's manager said he was "shocked" at the UFC's decision to not give Ngannou a little bit more time to prepare.
White then responded by criticizing Ngannou's management team, then Ngannou's manager Marquel Martin sent a fiery response to the UFC president.
