The UFC has given a formal offer to Conor McGregor to fight against Dustin Poirier under the non- titled lightweight fight category and this fight titled as McGregor vs Poirier 2.
Dana White confirmed it to Barstool sports on Wednesday. There are other UFC sources that confirmed the news to ESPN about the bout which came in a physical contract.
Though they offered McGregor with Poirier fight, his agency expressed its desire to arrange a fight event with Manny Pacquiao, the Filipino superstar.
Conor is likely to fight a sparring match aka freestyling combat fighting with Dustin. This event will be completely dedicated to charity. Great initiative though!
McGregor vs Poirier: Are they really going to fight?
On Wednesday Poirier left a savage remark on tweeter saying “I accept”. He left his impression with just these two words and nothing. But he told ESPN in a personal message that he did not receive any physical contract from the UFC.

McGregor has been willing to fight in matches recently. He said he was “frustrated” because he could not be able to participate in any. He even shared the screenshots of some direct messages with Dana White, president of the UFC, where he theoretically begged to arrange an event for him.
White then reclaimed his defence saying he offered the position of “Replacement Fighter” to McGregor for a lightweight title between Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson. But as it makes sense it hurt his pride so he denied it. Later he expressed his desire to fight Justin Gaethje. But poor McGregor was dissed again. Justin chooses Nurmagomedov.

Continuing his hunting for opponent McGregor openly challenged the Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao, later this year. Though this politician cum combat fighter has not replied back to his answer.
