Dustin Poirier announces that he wants to fight in the same card as Khabib vs Tony at Brooklyn, on April 18.
He also names potential candidates who he wants to fight with, it’s either Conor McGregor or Nate Diaz.
Might try to get on this card! https://t.co/oPLWd3iCKY

Conor announced in September that he would fight on January 18, 2020, but as sources say Conor McGregor won’t participate in that card as promised.
If he wants to get a rematch with Khabib, he needs to defeat at least one top 5 UFC Lightweight contender. Conor vs Poirier 2 makes sense because if McGregor wins he will get a chance to fight Khabib next if Poirier wins he will avenge his loss.
