Conor McGregor Accepts Dustin Poirier Fight On One Condition

When one door opens another one closes in the seemingly endless saga of booking a Conor McGregor fight.

UFC President Dana White refused to budge on a 2021 booking for Dustin Poirier vs. McGregor. "The Notorious" one previously accepted the fight on the condition it took place this year. In a follow-up tweet on Wednesday, McGregor publicly accepted the fight on a new condition: that it takes place at AT&T Stadium (formerly Cowboys stadium) in Arlington, Texas.

McGregor also reasserted his intention to box Manny Pacquiao following the planned fight with Poirier, the latter of whom has already accepted. One prevailing theory for the UFC's insistance to book the fight in 2021 is the potential to draw a live gate in a state like Florida or Texas.
