Conor McGregor to potentially face Dustin Poirier if victorious in Dublin

Jared Wickerham

It was revealed on UFC Tonight that the organization is potentially looking to make Conor McGregor v Dustin Poirier if the Irishman is successful against Cole Miller in Dublin.

Ask and you shall receive.

UFC featherweight Conor McGregor may be scheduled to headline the UFC's return to Dublin against Cole Miller, but the UFC is already setting up for a potential match-up with Dustin Poirier, should the Irishman leave his hometown victorious in July.

Ariel Helwani revealed the news on UFC Tonight.

McGregor had recently voiced his interest in the Poirier match-up when he was on the MMA Hour:

"I want Dustin. I want Dustin real bad."

McGregor is 14-2 in his MMA career, and 2-0 since joining the UFC in 2013. The potential match-up against Poirier would be a significant step up in competition for Conor, as Dustin is ranked seven spots ahead of him in the rankings at No. 7.
