And, per White, he's "completely obsessed with the rematch" following his first knockout defeat of his professional MMA career.

Speaking to ESPN, he said: "Well, when you have two guys that are in their positions - Dustin is the No. 1 ranked guy in the world, you got Conor who is ranked No. 6, and they want the trilogy, you got to go with the trilogy.

"We're probably going to try to put that fight together this summer."

But it seems that the Stockton slugger will have to settle for another opponent with White targeting a third fight between McGregor and Poirier.

White also commented on the UFC lightweight title picture with champion Khabib Nurmagomedov still non-committal on his retirement stance.

The UFC boss plans to match up the top lightweight contenders against each other in an unofficial tournament.

"The fights that can be made to find out who becomes the next champion are unbelievable," he added.
