Leaked Messages From UFC Twitter Account Suggests Conor Mcgregor Vs Dustin Poirier II Is For Lightweight Title

Leaked Messages From UFC Twitter Account Suggests Conor Mcgregor Vs Dustin Poirier II Is For Lightweight Title

Messages from UFC's Twitter account suggest that Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier's main event bout at UFC 257 will be for the UFC lightweight title.

The two square off inside the Octagon for a second time on 23rd January as UFC head to 'Fight Island' for their first pay-per-view of 2021.

It's a huge bout as it is given it's been a year since the UFC's biggest star destroyed Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds, but the fight may well have just got even bigger going off what fans are being told by UFC's DM chatbot on Twitter.

Dustin Poirier Accuses Conor McGregor Of Breaking Rematch Promise

published at11 days ago

There's no official word from Dana White or the UFC as of yet and it could well be a technical error. However, it would indicate that current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is relinquishing the strap.

He has made a promise to his mother that he will never fight again following the death of his father and trainer but White is still hopeful of convincing him to return.

McGregor, who held the lightweight title alongside the featherweight belt after making history with a win over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, has promised to deliver a "masterpiece" at UFC 257.

The first encounter between he and Poirier was at featherweight back in 2014 at UFC 178. McGregor put 'The Diamond' away in the first round at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
