• Conor McGregor’s Next Opponent & Fight Date Revealed

During an interview with ESPN, UFC President Dana White revealed that he has offered Conor McGregor a fight with Dustin Poirier on January 23, 2021.

Below is what Dana said:

“We offered him a fight. We got him his own date. We have everything laid out for this year with World Champions. He’s been offered Dustin Poirier on January 23rd. It’s a yes or no answer.”

McGregor took to Twitter to accept the fight. Here’s what he wrote on Twitter:

“I accept, Jan 23rd is on!

My goal is to see this fight take place in Cowboy stadium. Proper Style! Jerry Jones is a friend and the stadium can hold our crowd. I will be ready for Texas and Texas will be ready for my fans!

Then Manny. #McGregorSportsandEntertainment”

Poirier replied by asking McGregor what weight he wants to fight at.

McGregor then sent another message to Poirier:

“Another dusting for Dustin, incoming.”

McGregor is referring to UFC 178 PPV (September 27, 2014) in the Instagram post, where he defeated Poirier via TKO in 1 minute and 46 seconds of the very first round in a Featherweight bout (145 lbs), and won the Performance of the Night.

McGregor’s last MMA fight took place on January 18, 2020, at UFC 246, where he defeated Donald Cerrone via TKO in just 40 seconds in a Welterweight bout (170 lbs), and won the Performance of the Night. That pay-per-view drew 1 million buys.

McGregor announced his retirement from MMA earlier this year, but is coming back again (like he has done in the past).
