He's now in line to rematch 'The Notorious' but his decision to potentially fight the returning UFC superstar hasn't gone down too well with Ferguson.

'El Cucuy' brutally slammed Poirier before taking a ruthless dig at McGregor on Twitter.

"What A Sell Out, Taking A Bribe From An International Terrorist. Good Job Kid. I Represent America. All That Talk About The Fight Game Only To Be Afraid & Be Left Behind Out Of The Loop. Take The Money & Be Proud Fake," he wrote in response to Poirier reacting to McGregor accepting a fight against him.

McGregor and Poirier first fought at featherweight at UFC 178 in September 2014 with the Irishman securing a first-round victory.

But the American has only lost two fights since that defeat in Las Vegas.

And speaking to MMA Fighting, the 31-year-old said he just wants big fights after one Octagon outing this year.

"I don't really know, honestly, what's going on with the whole situation," he said.

"Of course I would take the fight. I would fight him, I would fight Tony [Ferguson], I just want big fights and I think that's what's coming.

"I would like to fight again this year. We'll see. I haven't heard back from negotiation side of the UFC or Conor, but it's a new week and I'm hoping to hear something."

Poirier hasn't fought since his grueling victory over Dan Hooker in June.

As for McGregor, he last fought in January when he destroyed Donald Cerrone.
