Dustin Poirier responds to Conor McGregor’s calls for a trilogy. Poirier became the first person to knock the Irishman out at UFC 257.
Conor McGregor had a less than stellar return last month. The Notorious declared his intentions to knock Dustin Poirier out in the first round itself. The match would end in the second. More importantly however, it was him that would end up knocked out instead.
McGregor has congratulated and praised Poirier for the victory but is determined to prove that he’s learned from the fight.

“Despite the loss I am on the correct path of evolution,” McGregor wrote on an IG Post. “Hats off! A well fought fight by The Diamond, 1 a piece now with a Trilogy bout for all the marbles! Wow! Exciting! Not a trilogy I was expecting, nor the tactical affair I was anticipating, but I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t meant to be. This is exactly how this was always meant to be! Buzzing!!

There are a few details to be taken care off before the match can be booked. However, according to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, both fighters are looking for a date around May. Considering the hype around both fighters (albeit for contrasting reasons) at the moment, it is likely that that the UFC will be more than willing to announce the match as soon as possible.
