Dustin Poirier has signed on to face Conor McGregor in a 3rd assembly between the 2 combined martial arts rivals, US media stories stated Friday.

A number of stories stated Poirier had agreed to face Irish star McGregor at UFC 264 on July 10.

The trilogy battle comes after American brawler Poirier demolished McGregor with a second-round technical knockout throughout their second assembly in January.

That one-sided bout adopted McGregor’s first-round knockout victory over Poirier of their first assembly in 2014.

ESPN reported that the battle can be a five-round bout at 155 kilos — the identical circumstances for January’s rematch.

McGregor, 32, will likely be chasing his first victory since January 2020 whereas the 31-year-old Poirier (27 wins, 5 defeats) will likely be in search of a 3rd consecutive victory.

McGregor had questioned his personal future after January’s defeat in Abu Dhabi, when he left the venue utilizing the assistance of a crutch.

The Irishman has been repeatedly linked to a boxing match in opposition to Filipino welterweight star Manny Pacquiao.

McGregor pocketed an estimated $30 million in 2017 after preventing Floyd Mayweather in a cross-combat bout in Las Vegas.
