UFC president, Dana White has provided an update on the rumored Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier rematch at UFC 257.
Lately, White mentioned the battle was a finished deal but Poirier arrived out and mentioned he hadn’t gotten a deal. Nevertheless, just days afterwards the battle was reported by a number of outlets and now the UFC boss has provided an update on when it will be declared.
“I don’t know (if he signed it but). Pay attention, I’m not worried about it. Conor McGregor has hardly ever explained, ‘Listen I want to combat,’ absent out the way that he’s absent out, talked about it. We acquired him his personal date,” White reported to ESPN. “Conor McGregor’s likely to show up and combat. I’m not anxious about his bout agreement, but I really do not know if it is been signed. I’m assuming it has, but it was not the other working day when I texted the battle was not finished still.”
Conor McGregor has not fought since he scored a 40-next TKO win about Donald Cerrone at UFC 246. It was his very first battle due to the fact he misplaced to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in his return to the activity.
Dustin Poirier, in the meantime, is coming off a person of the most effective fights of the 12 months in his final decision get over Dan Hooker. Just before that, he way too, was submitted by Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title.
