Dustin Poirier, the battle-tested UFC lightweight contender, has been through wars inside the octagon. His trilogy with Conor McGregor is etched in MMA history, with each fight delivering drama, controversy, and unforgettable moments. While Poirier initially expressed reservations about a fourth bout, he’s now keeping the door open—if fate intervenes.

Dustin Poirier Opens up on Potential Rematch with Conor McGregor

In a conversation with journalist Jake Asman Dustin Poirier stated “It could happen, if the stars align. But it just feels like even talking about it after going for the rivalry with him for so many years and fighting him back to back in 2021. As I prepare to get ready for a fight week for the undisputed belt, Conor McGregor is fighting a guy whose last fight I choked him out of. It just feels so far removed, and so many things have to happen before then.”

This conversion has ignited loads of excitement and expectations among fans and if this materializes it will surely be historic.

The Trilogy Recap

Let’s rewind to the trilogy:

  1. UFC 178 (2014): A young Dustin Poirier faced a brash Irishman named Conor McGregor. The result? A first-round TKO victory for McGregor. The loss fueled Poirier’s hunger for redemption.
  2. UFC 257 (2021): The rematch took place years later. Poirier had evolved into a seasoned fighter, and McGregor was still the charismatic superstar. This time, it was Poirier who emerged victorious, securing a second-round TKO.
  3. UFC 264 (2021): The rubber match—the decider. The fight was intense, with both men trading blows. But fate intervened. In the closing seconds of Round 1, McGregor suffered a gruesome leg injury, leading to a doctor’s stoppage. Poirier won by TKO, but the victory was bittersweet.

Dustin Poirier knows that a fourth fight would be historic. It would transcend titles and become a saga—a tale of two warriors who defined an era. Whether it’s in the lightweight division or at a catchweight, fans would tune in. The mystique of McGregor remains, and Poirier’s resilience is undeniable.
