Conor McGregor-Dustin Poirier In Works For Early 2021
It appears as if early 2021 is now the target date for Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier to have their rematch.
A bout to kickoff 2021 is nearly complete between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.
And while McGregor is disappointed the fight is not taking place this year, he has some ideas for the contest.
The former UFC champion is targeting Cowboy Stadium in Dallas for the showdown with Poirier.
Following that, he wants to take on boxing legend Manny Pacquiao.
I accept, Jan 23rd is on!
My goal is to see this fight take place in Cowboy stadium. Proper Style! Jerry Jones is a friend and the stadium can hold our crowd. I will be ready for Texas and Texas will be ready for my fans!
Then Manny. #McGregorSportsandEntertainment
