The former UFC interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier lost his interim belt in a title unification bout to the UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. While he has since been on the sidelines nursing his injuries from the title challenge at UFC 242 and get back to full fitness, he has also been training and is looking to get back to fighting. When he was recently asked who he wants to fight next, Poirier sharply replied it has to be Conor or Nate.
Poirier has been calling out popular UFC fighter Nate Diaz ever since he lost to Jorge Masvidal for the BMF belt. While on the other hand, Poirier has previously fought and lost to Conor McGregor back when he was still a featherweight at UFC178.
Poirier was asked by a fan over on Twitter who he wants to fight next on the undercard of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson on April 18th. He replied that he either wants to fight Nate Diaz or is looking to avenge his previous defeat to McGregor in a big-money match.
