UFC Lightweight fighter Dustin Poirier recently discussed his last opponent Conor McGregor and the UFC Lightweight title. Speaking on the Joe Rogan experience, Poirier believes that McGregor doesn’t deserve a shot at the division’s title right now.
‘We’re just trying to get the right deal structured,’ Poirier began, speaking on McGregor. ‘This is going to be a big fight. He knocked me out, (and) I knocked him out. The trilogy. For sure one of the biggest fights this year, but maybe of all time. ’¦ I don’t directly talk to them. They talk to my manager, Rob Roveta.”
Dustin Poirier on Conor McGregor
“We try to put ourselves in the best position to sit at the table with them and have a legit conversation about getting this fight booked. We’re trying to structure the right deal, and when that happens, the fight will be on. Until then, we’ll see.’
‘No, I don’t think (he should fight for a title),’ Poirier continued. ‘Conor’s been away so long. His last two fights at 155, he’s lost. So you can’t put him in there for a title fight. How could you justify doing that when you have guys like Oliveira?’
