Conor McGregor has revealed his desire to fight Dustin Poirier for a FOURTH time in order to fully settle the score.
McGregor’s feud with Poirier began at UFC 178, with the Irishman winning via TKO to secure the ‘Performance of the Night’ and keep himself on track for a world title shot.
The pair met again at UFC 257, with Poirier avenging his defeat with a TKO victory. Poirier landed a combination of punches on McGregor, with the fight being stopped by the referee.
With the scores level at 1-1, a UFC 264 bout was pencilled in, an opportunity for both men to prove once and for all that they are definitively the better fighter.
Unfortunately, that remains ambiguous, with McGregor breaking his leg gifting Poirier a TKO win via doctor stoppage. It wasn’t a particularly fitting way to sign off on the trilogy.
Thankfully for the fans who are hoping to see the pair meet again, McGregor has insisted that he will, at some point in the future, fight Poirier for the fourth time.
He’s quoted by The Sun saying, “Really nasty elbows and upkicks for sure. That or maybe a really annoying blue bottle was around him after the fight.”
“Make no mistake they are not looking forward to what is coming. I will be back and it will be settled. Once and for all.”
