Dana White: Offers Are Out For Conor McGregor – Dustin Poirier 2
By FCF Staff
After Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier agreed to fight for charity in a Twitter exchange, Dana White’s reporting the UFC has offers out for the rematch.
Earlier this week, McGregor asked Poirier if he would be interested in fighting in a bout for charity, which would take place in December. Poirier agreed to the proposal.
“(Conor) called out Poirier for a fight with (him) in Dublin for charity,” White said. “So we offered them both a fight. We offered Dustin and Conor a fight, so we’re waiting to hear back from both of them.”
