‘The Diamond’ finds himself in a right place but unfortunately at a wrong time as champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is slated to welcome back superstar Conor McGregor from his layoff.

Poirier definitely believes he deserves a title shot but understands the fight business. Poirier however is not letting his guard down, the American Top Team product is ready to step in if Nurmagomedov or McGregor can’t make it to the fight.

“I’m not 100-percent sure. We’ve got to see the timeframe,” Poirier said at the UFC on FOX 30 post fight press conference. “This is a crazy, crazy sport. It might be two completely different guys fighting for that title in October. You never know. This last year has been insane. But hopefully that fight comes together. I don’t plan on taking long. I’m not taking a year off. I’m hitting my stride right now, I’m in my prime. I’m feeling the best I’ve ever felt. I want to keep growing on this.

“I do want a title shot, I feel like I’ve earned it. I’m next. I’ve paid my dues year after year in this gritty game. We’ll see. I don’t know the timeframe.”
