Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Pursuing a disappointing reduction in his UFC 242 title bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov, Dustin Poirier’s path ahead did not quickly seem apparent, as the prime contender even briefly outlined retirement. On the other hand, provided just a few days to replicate, Poirier looks ready to get again on the horse, tweeting previously nowadays that a rematch with Conor McGregor would make sense for equally gentlemen.
I consider me and Conor functioning it back helps make a good deal of sense at this level.

To place it basically, Poirier is accurate! “The Diamond” justifies a prime contender adhering to his decline, and McGregor has to leap back in with a top rated-ranked Light-weight prior to talks of rematching Nurmagomedov in Moscow make any feeling at all. Offered the background among the two, and their diverging occupation paths, it would be a pretty fascinating bout that could create a significant victory for both athlete.
McGregor, on the other hand, did not bounce at the give, rather getting to Twitter to belittle Poirier and communicate about their 1st bout.
I fed you to the canvas in ninety seconds bro.
You really should have spoke my identify with a little bit much more respect in that create up. “McGregor’s not next”

It is good trash chat, but at this position, doesn’t it sense a bit pressured? Poirier’s fascination in a rematch was expressed in a issue-of-truth manner and without the need of disrespect, but McGregor nevertheless took it as an opportunity to remind the globe of his five-yr-outdated accomplishment. No a person is arguing that McGregor is no more time a star or risky leading fighter, but speaking about previous victories is only attention-grabbing for so extensive.
McGregor has to make the stroll all over again at some issue quickly, and Poirier is a realistic opponent.
I hope everyone is properly energized for this weekend’s major occasion.
