Now, it looks like everyone is waiting on Conor McGregor to answer the call to the octagon.
McGregor was the one to offer Poirier the exhibition match, so there is not much reason to believe McGregor will turn down the option to face Poirier in an official UFC event.
More details to come as we await the response of Mr. Conor McGregor.
All I know is that if McGregor wants to come out of "retirement" and face Poirier, he better be ready for the battle of a lifetime.
