UFC 257: Dana White releases extended hype video for Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier rematch

UFC 257 is less than three weeks away, and the UFC is shifting into full-on promotion mode.

The third event of a three-cards-in-10-days return to “Fight Island,” the Jan. 23 pay-per-view is headlined by a rematch between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.

On Monday, UFC president Dana White released a new promotional video hyping the rematch on his social media channels. The UFC released a few promo videos and commercials in previous weeks, but the one released Monday is the longest to date and features a Hidden Citizens cover of “I Ran (So Far Away),” the early 1980s classic by A Flock of Seagulls.

The highlight flashes back to UFC 178, which hosted their first fight won by McGregor after a whole load of trash-talking in the buildup, before switching gears to what’s occurred since the two fighters’ initial September 2014 showdown.

You can watch the trailer in the video below.

UFC 257 takes place Jan. 23 on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi. The main card streams on pay-per-view after prelims on ESPN/ESPN+.
