Dustin Poirier Calls For Conor McGregor Rematch Next

Dustin Poirier Calls For Conor McGregor Rematch Next

Nurmagomedov is coming off a dominating win over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.

"The Diamond" took to Twitter on Tuesday to call for a rematch with onetime featherweight foe Conor McGregor.

After four failed attempts to make this fight happen due to injuries and weight cutting problems will this be fifth time lucky? By this victory, he passed himself to the top of the leaderboard in UFC's 155 lb fighter list.

"Yeah, he's next. Tony Ferguson is next in line for the fight if he accepts the fight".

The sudden interest in a potential McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov fight hardly comes as a surprise.

Perhaps more interesting than another McGregor online rant, Poirier also added some new options to the booking earlier today, suggesting the two could box if his former rival wasn't interested in stepping into the cage for an MMA contest.

The "Notorious" has not fought since being stopped by Nurmagomedov in October 2018.

The rematch may make sense to Poirier but McGregor was quick to remind him that he "fed you to the canvas in 90 seconds".

Most fans of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) still believe that Conor McGregor would return to the octagon at some point. He is on a 12-fight win streak and has not lost since 2012. Then we gonna fight. "We'll see how this thing plays out when Khabib will fight again and if Tony wants the fight". I want to fight those guys. When I fought Danny Castillo, he did the same kind of thing. Dana White has named him the next challenger, that is if Ferguson accepts the fight and his recent comments are certain to rile up the Russian lightweight champion.

So what is halting a Georges St-Pierre versus Khabib Nurmagomedov UFC battle? A great guy, great champion, and a great athlete. Why not? If you have money in your hand, this is very good.

'Maybe I can fight with GSP. And we can fight somewhere in Congo. Hence, a rematch between McGregor and Nurmagomedov is something although the Irishman may stand to lose more than just a match if he is not ready.

There is no information provided on when will he return to the ring as he said he will take some rest before facing someone in any future fights. He reaches a different type of clientele, from the Middle East, the Muslim world idolizing him.
