Dustin Poirier, the battle-hardened lightweight contender, has unequivocally shut the door on any possibility of a fourth fight against Conor McGregor. The two fighters have already shared the Octagon three times, with Poirier emerging victorious twice. However, despite the financial allure and the potential for another blockbuster showdown, Poirier has made it clear that he won’t entertain the idea of facing McGregor again. Let’s delve into the reasons behind his resolute stance.

The Trilogy and Beyond

Poirier’s most recent victory over McGregor came at UFC 264, where he secured a first-round TKO due to a leg injury sustained by McGregor. This win not only settled their trilogy but also elevated Poirier’s status in the lightweight division.

Poirier is now on the cusp of greatness. His upcoming bout against Islam Makhachev at UFC 302 presents a golden opportunity for him to claim the UFC lightweight championship. With the title tantalizingly within reach, Poirier’s focus is unwavering.

Dustin Poirier’s Stance

In a recent interview with ESPN Poirier candidly expressed his feelings about a potential fourth fight with McGregor:

“I don’t feel the need to fight him again at all. I don’t need that energy in my life.”

Poirier’s refusal to engage in another McGregor bout stems from more than just financial considerations. He recognizes the emotional toll that such a rivalry can take. The animosity, the mental warfare, and the intense buildup—it all adds up. Poirier has chosen to prioritize his well-being and mental clarity over any additional payday.

As the MMA world eagerly awaits UFC 302, Dustin Poirier remains steadfast in his pursuit of the lightweight title. Whether he emerges victorious against Makhachev or faces setbacks, one thing is certain: Poirier has closed the chapter on McGregor. The bad energy associated with their past encounters will not find a place in his future.
