The win over McGregor has pushed Dustin at the threshold of initiating his own realm in UFC. However, in the run-up of his fight against Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier in a media interaction addressed the then rife talks of McGregor Vs. Pacquiao, and in order to send a clear warning to McGregor, he frivolously commented about taking his spot against Manny Pacquiao.
So, now that he has walked the talk against Conor McGregor, and has cemented his name as one of the finest Lightweights of all time, will Dustin also explore the field of boxing?
