Dana White: Offer made for Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 in UFC

"We offered Dustin and Conor a fight..."

According to UFC president Dana White, Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 can happen in the octagon.

This came not long after that McGregor openly on social media offered Poirier a rematch for charity outside of the UFC. Recently both McGregor and Poirier have been displeased with the UFC’s financial offers and negotiation techniques. Poirier ended up not accepting a planned fight with Tony Ferguson at UFC 254, and McGregor released private messages between him and White as a response to the UFC president’s claims of the Irishman turning down fights.

However now in an interview with Barstool sports, White claims to have offered both McGregor and Poirier a rematch in the UFC.

“We offered Dustin [Poirier] and Conor [McGregor] a fight, so we’re waiting to hear back from both of them,” he said.

Poirier took to Twitter not long after to post “I accept.”
