Conor McGregor back on January 23?

Irishman Conor McGregor verbally agreed to face Dustin Poirier in a January 23 gala offered by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

McGregor had indicated in recent weeks that he absolutely wanted to fight Poirier in 2020, but UFC president Dana White has adamantly refused to revisit his short-term plans. The latter instead proposed a date in January.

As he likes to do, “The Notorious” responded to the invitation through his Twitter account on Wednesday. ESPN, however, said it was only a verbal agreement at the moment and no document had yet been signed.

“I accept, the [gala du] January 23 goes ahead! McGregor wrote. My goal is to see this fight take place at the Cowboys stadium [de Dallas]. Jerry Jones is a friend and the stadium can contain our crowd. I’ll be ready for Texas and Texas will be ready for my fans! ”

ESPN earlier revealed White’s plans after an interview with him.

“We gave him a fight, we gave him his own date,” White said. We don’t have a date this year. We have everything planned for this year, with world champions fighting for the titles. He apparently wants to fight Dustin Poirier, so we went to ESPN and got him his own gala. He will have to answer yes or no. “

McGregor had his last fight in January, when he defeated Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds. He had subsequently announced his retirement.
