Mark July 10 on the calendar, as that could be the date we get to see Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor conclude their long-awaited trilogy.
Poirier posted a cryptic Tweet earlier today on his official Twitter account, seemingly hinting that he and McGregor will get to settle their differences in the Octagon on July 10th.
July 10th— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) March 28, 2021
“July 10th,” Poirier wrote on Sunday.
Poirier’s tweet comes just days after it was announced that Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler would square off for the vacant lightweight title at UFC 262 on May 15, with the champion expected to defend his title against the winner of Poirier vs. McGregor 3.
Poirier avenged his 2014 knockout loss to McGregor with a second-round TKO victory of his own at UFC 257, which saw ‘The Diamond’ overwhelm ‘The Notorious’ with a barrage of punches against the fence to become the first man to finish McGregor with strikes.
If Poirier’s cryptic Tweet means what we think it means, expect an official announcement from the UFC in the coming days.
