Poirier Ready to Silence McGregor in Potential Fourth Fight
After Conor McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) expressed a desire to face Dustin Poirier (29-8 MMA, 21-7 UFC) again, Poirier is open to the challenge, albeit skeptical about its necessity. Their rivalry, currently standing at 2-1 in Poirier’s favor, has been a thrilling saga in MMA history. McGregor first triumphed in 2014 but Poirier avenged his loss with a stunning knockout in 2021, followed by a controversial victory due to McGregor’s injury in their trilogy bout at UFC 264. While McGregor plans an octagon return in 2024, possibly against Michael Chandler, the path to a fourth match with Poirier is still uncertain. Poirier, recently defeated by Justin Gaethje at UFC 291, is eyeing a comeback, potentially at UFC 300. Despite the unclear future, Poirier’s readiness to face McGregor again hints at another epic chapter in their storied rivalry.
As Poirier awaits his next UFC bout, the possibility of a fourth showdown with McGregor looms, promising another explosive encounter in the octagon.
