UFC president is certainly disappointed with how the fight ended, and so are many fight fans around the world who tuned in to watch the epic trilogy between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor unfold inside the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas.
Ahead of what was a fun night of fights, the main event failed to deliver in a lot of ways. While Dustin Poirier may have won, a lot of fans will agree that it wasn’t as conclusive a result as one would have hope, whether be it in favor of Poirier or McGregor.
Be that as it may, after everything was said and done, it was Dustin Poirier who triumphed over the Notorious to pick up a TKO win over the former dual champion in the main event of UFC 264.
In the post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White remarked that there is absolutely going to be the fourth fight, considering the outcome of the trilogy bout. Needless to say, a lot of fans will agree that a fourth bout is certain to be the decider for this epic match-up that became the talking point of mixed martial arts for 2021.
Will there ever be a Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor 4?
Conor McGregor broke his leg in the closing moments of the fourth round. It’s safe to say that it will be a while before McGregor makes his UFC return. However, a case can be made that we might never see the day, and McGregor might decide to retire once and for all. However, looking at McGregor’s statement after the loss, it looks like the Notorious certainly wants to get back at the former interim lightweight champion.
Needless to say, the fourth bout promises to be of epic proportions whenever it takes place, however, fans will have to wait for a while before we see that happen.
As for the UFC’s lightweight division, it’s safe to say that Dustin Poirier will fight for the UFC lightweight championship next against current lightweight champion Charles Oliveira. The bout will likely take place at the end of 2021, or possibly at the beginning of 2022.
