UFC FN 76: Conor McGregor Offers to Fight Dustin Poirier Following Joseph Duffy’s Withdrawal
By FCF Staff
Conor McGregor may be booked for the biggest fight of his life on December 12th, but the brash featherweight claims he’d be willing to take on Dustin Poirier this Saturday, following Joseph Duffy’s withdrawal.
On Wednesday, the UFC confirmed that Duffy has been forced to drop out of the UFC FN 76 headliner, due to a mild discussion. After the news broke, McGregor tweeted out the following comment:
I will give peanut another crack at the King no sweat. I'll take the gate. It's my gate anyway. A cool 7. Cash. See you at the weigh ins.

McGregor faced Poirier last September and stopped the veteran in the opening round.
“Notorious” is scheduled to fight featherweight champion Jose Aldo at the December 12th, UFC 194 card, which is expected to be one of the biggest fights in the promotion’s history.
UFC FN 76 will take place in McGregor’s home city of Dublin, Ireland.
