One of the best fights in UFC history gets its sequel on Saturday night in Salt Lake City

UFC is back on PPV this weekend with its second helping in the month of July. The promotion heads back to Salt Lake City, Utah for an epic clash between lightweights Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje in the main event. While no official title will be at stake, UFC is resurrecting the ceremonial "BMF" title for the rematch between the two all-action fighters.

The two first met back in 2018 in what was considered the Fight of the Year as they battled it out over four hellacious rounds before Poirier managed to stop Gaethje. Since then, their paths have diverted with Poirier winning two more fights to get his shot at the title, but he came up short in getting submitted by Khabib Nurmagomedov. After that, Poirier bounced right back to pick up a win over Dan Hooker and a pair of victories over Conor McGregor before again falling short in a title shot against Charles Oliveira.

Gaethje, meanwhile, seemed to resurrect his career with four straight devastating knockout wins over James Vick, Edson Barboza, Donald Cerrone and Tony Ferguson to get his shot at the belt, but he, like Poirier, came up short against Nurmagomedov. After a bounce-back win over Michael Chandler, Gaethje too failed to get past the test of Oliveira in a title opportunity.
