McGregor and Poirier fought back in 2014 at UFC 178, where the Irishmen defeated him via TKO in the first round. Poirier has recently been calling out McGregor for a rematch.
I think me and Conor running it back makes a lot of sense at this point.

However, McGregor was quick to turn the fight down.
I fed you to the canvas in 90 seconds bro.
You should have spoke my name with a bit more respect in that build up. “McGregor’s not next”
Motherfucker, it’s McGregor always!
McGregor is the goal! Always!
Say that now and I’ll think about it.#GoneIn90seconds #NicCage #AJolie

“I fed you to the canvas in 90 seconds bro. You should have spoke my name with a bit more respect in that build up. “McGregor’s not next” Motherfucker, it’s McGregor always! McGregor is the goal! Always! Say that now and I’ll think about it,” McGregor tweeted.
Ever since that loss to McGregor, Lousiana native Dustin has amassed a record of 9-2-1 and became the interim lightweight champion. Both fighters are currently in the same weight class and have suffered loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in their last fight.
