The third fight between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor hasn’t been finalized yet. But, the UFC is targeting July for what will surely be, a massive bout.

Poirier and McGregor fought for the second time this past January, and Poirier avenged his 2014 loss to the star, via a second-round stoppage. After the fight, McGregor campaigned for a rubber match and Poirier said he was on board.

This past weekend, after UFC 260, UFC President Dana White confirmed that the promotion is hoping to book Poirier – McGregor III for July 10th. UFC 264 is expected to take place on that day at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Poirier also recently tweeted out the comment below:

McGregor (22-5) has gone 1-1 now since he was submitted by Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018. Poirier (27-6), meanwhile, has also defeated Dan Hooker since ‘The Diamond’ was submitted by Nurmagomedov in 2019.
