By the time Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor finally agreed to run it back, UFC had already set the rest of its 2020 schedule, which means little to no space left on the last two pay-per-view (PPV) cards was present of the year.
UFC 255 on November 21st and UFC 256 on December 12th.
For this reason, the promotion in 2021 with “McGregor vs. Poirier 2 ”because you don’t put any stars of their caliber (or a fight of this magnitude) on a weekly“ Fight Night ”card that has jewelry with an ESPN + password on it.
“Right now they have a list of events already booked with headliners and I think the UFC wants this to be somewhere in January and Conor wants to fight just like me this year,” Poirier told Teddy Atlas. “I want to fight in 2020, I want another fight this year. I think it’s such things that are slowing the fight down, but the negotiations are alive. “
I’m sure fans want to know which headliner is worth saving at the expense of a McGregor-Poirier rematch, and I’m not sure I have a satisfactory answer. I’ll say that a live goal – over $ 18 million when Notorious is in town – is no longer part of the equation.
Thank you, COVID-19.
It is unknown if McGregor would still be interested in keeping his “Diamond” date if the 2020 promotion fails to do anything. The part-time pugilist also claims to box Manny Pacquiao sometime next year, so only time will tell.
