According to BJ Penn, UFC already has plans to bolster the card with the addition of Poirier vs Ferguson.
When White was asked if UFC 254 could be the home of the super-fight, the smiling UFC president responded: "Probably."
Poirier, who lost to Khabib at UFC 242 last September, successfully defeated Dan Hooker by unanimous decision at a UFC event in June.
The 31-year-old UFC star has since taken to Twitter to react to White's tease over a fight between the 'Diamond' and 'Ferguson.'
'El Cucuy' was initially scheduled to face Khabib in April, but their mega-fight fell through for the fifth time due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
But the 'Eagle' has suggested that Ferguson could earn himself back into the title picture with a victory over Poirier.
UFC 254 is expected to feature a middleweight bout between Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier.
And UFC is also planning to put the featherweight fight between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Yair Rodriguez on the card.
