UFC 264 Fight Between Conor McGregor And Dustin Poirier Is OFF

The winner could potentially face UFC lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov or face the highest ranked fighter for the vacant championship if the Russian does indeed stay retired.

Speaking about McGregor vs. Poirier 2, Dana White said: "If Khabib does retire, then whoever the highest ranked guy is at the time will end up facing Conor if Conor beats Poirier and would end up fighting for the title, I'm sure.

"As a promoter, you always want the best guys in the world. But when a guy wants to retire, he probably should."

The UFC president added: "But the difference with a guy like Khabib is that he's been through so much and losing his dad is such a major blow to him.

"It was something that they did together and his dad wanted him to hit 30-0. But as a fight fan, I want Khabib to fight 10 more."

The lightweight showdown between McGregor and Poirier headlines UFC 257 on January 23. Here is how to watch it in the UK and Ireland.
