Former two-weight UFC champion Conor McGregor is ready for a 3rd combat in opposition to Dustin Poirier, who turned the primary man to knock out him out in January.
McGregor shortly knocked Poirier out in a featherweight contest in 2014 throughout his meteoric UFC rise, however the American’s savage leg kicks secured a TKO win over the Irishman when the 2 met once more at light-weight in Abu Dhabi in January.
“The combat is booked! July tenth you’re gonna see what the Mac is about,” McGregor wrote on Twitter on Saturday.
Regardless of the excessive profile of the encounter, it won’t be for the light-weight title emptiness created by the retirement of Khabib Nurmagomedov, which shall be stuffed when Michael Chandler takes on Charles Oliveira on Could 15 in Houston, Texas.
The UFC has not confirmed the occasion but, however it should most definitely happen in Las Vegas, Nevada as the centerpiece of the promotion’s annual Worldwide Combat Week.
