Conor McGregor Says He’d Rematch Dustin Poirier On One Condition
Conor McGregor is willing to have a second fight with Dustin Poirier but under one condition.
Back on September 27, 2014, McGregor and Poirier did battle on the main card of UFC 178. McGregor won the matchup via first-round TKO. The “Notorious” one would eventually become a two-division UFC champion and the biggest star in MMA. Poirier didn’t end up doing too bad himself, capturing the interim UFC Lightweight Title and becoming a fan favorite for his fighting style.
Recently, McGregor and Poirier have been trying to set up a rematch. At first, McGregor wanted to go outside the UFC for an exhibition bout with proceeds being donated to charity. The UFC caught wind of this and decided to officially offer the “Notorious” one and “The Diamond” a fight.
Taking to his Twitter account, McGregor said he’d fight Poirier a second time under one condition.
Hello Dustin! I accepted the @ufc offer to fight you, but told them it must happen in 2020. I’m ready for Nov 21st, given that cards recent injury issues, as well as any of the December dates, the 12th and the 19th. I’ll also still donate the $500k to The Good Fight Foundation 🙏 https://t.co/23hN4AHtoI

McGregor competed back in January. After being out of action for over a year, McGregor shared the Octagon with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. The first-ever UFC “champ-champ” won the bout in 40 seconds via TKO. Poirier’s most recent bout was on June 27. In a “Fight of the Year” contender that went the distance, Poirier defeated Dan Hooker via unanimous decision.
