Poirier, a more experienced fighter, has entered the octagon 33 times. He left victorious in 22 opportunities, of which only six were in the main event bout.
At UFC 178, ‘The Notorious’ knocked out Poirier in the first round to improve his record to 16-2. It wasn’t until 2021 that the two combatants, who were both in their mid-20s in 2014, faced each other again.
The Louisiana native prevailed in their rematch at UFC 257: Poirier vs. McGregor 2 in January 2021. As a result of Poirier’s efforts, the fight ended after only two rounds. Six months later, at UFC 264, Poirier and McGregor met again to complete their trilogy.
The fight was stopped after just one round due to a medical emergency, so “The Diamond” continued his unbeaten streak. When Conor McGregor was in the midst of the round’s final minutes, he got a nasty cut on his leg that put an abrupt halt to the fight.
Conor McGregor hasn’t competed in the UFC or any other combat sport since his loss to Dustin Poirier. The Irishman has been training and healing from his injury at home in Ireland.

As was previously indicated, McGregor is likely to make his next professional ring appearance in a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Even though the contract is reportedly “extremely close,” a few details still to be worked out before a fight can be officially declared.
A dispute has arisen because Conor McGregor wants the fight to last only 10 rounds instead of the originally agreed upon 12. The rumour mill has it that the boxing battle will take place at 155 lbs, meaning the pumped-up Irishman will have to make a significant weight loss.

This puts McGregor is sort of a weird spot with no obvious opponent. The most likely opponent for conor mcgregor are Charles Oliveira, Michael Chandler, Tony Ferguson, Kamaru Usman and Jake Paul.
