Conor McGregor has many great rivalries in the UFC, but the one with the Louisiana native Dustin Poirier is his most recent one. Though these two have already fought three times, the demand to see them inside the octagon again never seems to end.

During the trilogy, The Diamond got the better of the Notorious. In 2021, Poirier beat McGregor in their second and third fight. Earlier in 2014, the Irishman had got one over the Louisiana native. However, that fight took place at featherweight.

Neither of the two looks like they can make featherweight at this moment. Also, Poirier has looked a lot better than McGregor in recent years. Since both of them are fan favorites and the trilogy fight was somewhat indecisive, the appeal for another bout exists.
