Right now, the fight between Conor and Poirier does not have any title implications. UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov recently retired from MMA, giving up his belt in the process, but the promotion booked the vacant title fight between Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler for UFC 262 in May. Conor and Poirier, meanwhile, will not be fighting for a belt, but they will be fighting for a lot of money as the trilogy fight is among the biggest the UFC can make.

But it seems like Conor has some other plans as he took to social media to make the suggestion.

UFC 257 - Everything you need to know about Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 2

Conor is the first fighter in UFC history to have held two titles simultaneously. The prospective bout with Poirier marks the third meeting between the two stars. Conor won the first meeting back when both men competed at featherweight, winning by TKO in 1:46 at UFC 178 in September 2014. They rematched at UFC 257 this past January and the outcome was flipped as it was Poirier who earned a TKO victory at the 2:32 mark of the second round. Poirier and UFC President Dana White have indicated July 10 as the targeted date for the trilogy bout.

What is BMF belt, what does it stand for and will it be on the line at UFC 251 – Masvidal vs Usman?

The UFC has created one alternate belt recently, the BMF title that was fought for between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244, a fight that Masvidal won. The promotion hasn’t used the BMF title to promote fights since then.

But considering how big of a star Conor is and how his actions make difference in the UFC it won’t be surprising if UFC makes a belt just for him.
