Conor McGregor’s return is one of the biggest and the most anticipated events in UFC in 2019. Will The Irishman return in December, or will we have to wait till 2020 to see him fight inside the Octagon once again? Of late, McGregor has been teasing a return – and it looks like we’re going to get Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 soon!
Let us take a closer look at McGregor’s return as well as the possibility of a Poirier rematch.
People don’t remember or chose to forget.. when Conor Mcgregor fought Dustin Poirier , Poirier had the most wins/most finished in FW history.! This was a big fight & a step up for Conor at the time… and he ran through Dustin & ran Dustin out of the division.

Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 Confirmed?
McGregor and Poirier had both been taking shots at each other over Twitter. Poirier said that after losing to Khabib, McGregor is his natural opponent next. McGregor reminded him that the last time they met, the fight didn’t even last one whole round.
It is now being highly anticipated that both the men will take on each other at UFC 245 which takes place in Dublin, Ireland on the 14th of December. Given that this is Ireland and McGregor is Irish, many suspect this is when he will return. More interestingly, Conor too has been teasing this…
I’m almost positive they are going to announce Poirier vs McGregor for Dublin, December 14.

McGregor Teases UFC Return: When Will He Be Back?
In a recent Tweet that he posted a couple of days ago, McGregor simply wrote “Dublin, December 14th.” without any context. However, we know that December 14 is the date that UFC 245 is going to take place. The venue, though, is surprising because so far, the venue is expected to be the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It will still be interesting to see if Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 does indeed happen!
Dublin, December 14th.
