Conor McGregor is likely to return in 2022 and could fight Dustin Poirier again
Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier have met inside the octagon three times. Their trilogy fight ended in a rather anticlimactic fashion after McGregor suffered a broken left leg towards the end of the opening round.
The injury resulted in the fight being called off between rounds one and two and Poirier being declared the winner via TKO.
Conor McGregor won the first fight at UFC 178 in 2014, while Dustin Poirier won their rematch at UFC 257 earlier this year. Both fighters have expressed interest in fighting for the fourth time, particularly given the manner in which their third fight ended.
While Poirier is expected to fight UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira for the title later this year, Conor McGregor is set for a long recovery and will return no sooner than 2022.
