"You both get knocked out all the time 😴"

Responding to Diaz's comments, Poirier claimed that he would beat the Stockton native in a fight should he decide to return to the UFC once again:

"Come back for 1 fight and I'll beat the shit outta you bruh @NateDiaz209"

Michael Bisping discusses potential Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 4

During the post-fight presser following their trilogy, 'The Diamond' had stated that he would not take a McGregor fight for the fourth time. He that he had already defeated the Irishman twice in their three faceoffs. However, the 33-year-old fighter had not completely ruled out a fight for the fourth time if it was "just for money."

On a recent episode of his Believe You Me podcast, Bisping, alongside Anthony Smith, discussed the potentiality of a McGregor vs. Poirier for the fourth time.

Giving his take, the UFC analyst believes it will be a good comeback fight for the Irishman:

"That's a good fight for Conor to come back to. Simply stylistically. I mean listen, Dustin will probably more than likely box his head off because he's been struggling with his form recently... And he just snapped his leg. And he's been out for quite some time, and that's a negative. He's getting older. He's enjoying the spoils of his riches. It all adds together in the pot."
