Following Dustin Poirier’s second win over Conor McGregor earlier this year, there’s been extensive speculation about him fighting Charles Oliveira next. Now, it’s being reported that a fight between Poirier and the new lightweight champ is being planned for UFC 269.

After Poirier (28-6) stopped McGregor in January, the former interim champ opted to face McGregor in a rubber match, instead of fighting for the title. Poirier went on to record a TKO win over McGregor in July, while Oliveira (31-8) won the vacant title, by stopping Michael Chandler in May.

According to a report from MMA Fighting, multiple sources have informed the outlet that verbal agreements are in place for Oliveira – Poirier to take place on December 11th.

UFC 269 is planned for that date, in a location yet to be determined. Amanda Nunes is expected to defend the bantamweight title against Julianna Pena at the event.
