After answering questions from the media on Thursday at T-Mobile Arena, Poirier (27-6 MMA, 19-5 UFC) and McGregor (22-5 MMA, 10-3 UFC) had the first of two fight week staredowns.

It was a raucous scene with fans in attendance, and McGregor brought that energy with him to the stage and threw a kick at Poirier, who kept his composure and continued to show he won’t take McGregor’s bait.

UFC president Dana White was in the center of the faceoff, which can be viewed in the video above.

UFC 264 will mark the rubber match between the two lightweight contenders after McGregor won the first meeting by first-round TKO at UFC 178 in September 2014, with Poirier taking the rematch by second-round TKO at UFC 257 in January.
