Fans are expecting the Irishman to return at UFC 300 in April. While his return fight isn’t officialised, many believe that he is going to fight Michael Chandler. The two collided as rival coaches at TUF 31, and UFC CEO Dana White had also announced this fight earlier this year.

However, there is a new name popping up as McGregor’s next potential opponent. It is none other than the Irishman’s rival Dustin Poirier.
