Dustin Poirier has refused to rule out the possibility of fighting Conor McGregor for the fourth time.
Poirier was McGregor’s most recent opponent in the UFC. He was fighting the Irishman for a third time and was gifted a victory by that HORROR leg injury that McGregor sustained.
McGregor has not taken to the octagon since but is believed to be on the comeback trail. As has been well-established, he’s in great shape at current, having packed on a serious amount of size.
Whether McGregor has his eyes on a fourth tussle with Poirier remains to be seen, but Poirier is refusing to rule out the possibility of the fight coming to fruition in the future.
He’s quoted by The Sun saying, “I’m not sure. You never know in this sport. I don’t know if he’s coming back, what weight class, I’m not sure.”
“Never say never, but it’s not looking like it in the near future. We’ll see. I fought him three times. I’m trying to get to the title.”
McGregor has near doubled in size since he last fought in the UFC, so Poirier can be understood for questioning what weight class he is going to return into when he eventually comes back.
That said, McGregor has, at least officially, come out on the losing side of this trilogy, so you imagine he will be keen to right that wrong, thus a fight with Poirier cannot be ruled out.
