UFC 257:Conor Mcgregor vs Dustin Poirier
Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier have verbally agreed to compete at UFC 257 in January 2021, and now the weight division in which the bout would take place is beginning to come to light. Given the fact that both men are ranked in the top 5 at lightweight, Poirier has never competed at welterweight, and how the winner of the fight is likely to be next in line for a lightweight title shot, it would seem fair to assume that a bout between McGregor and Poirier would take place at lightweight. But if there is one thing that has become clear in following Conor McGregor over the years, his next move is always made with his own reasons, not anyone else’s logic. So when discussing McGregor’s progress and his upcoming clash with Dustin Poirier on Twitter, Coach John Kavanagh seemed to let the cat out of the bag on what weight class the fight will take place.
