In a social media post after the loss, McGregor referred to a “trilogy”, clearly indicating he would like to get back in the ring with Poirier. That seems like the most direct possible path moving forward, but it’s a little more complicated than that. Khabib Nurmagomedov, who beat both McGregor and Poirier, recently retired, vacating the UFC Lightweight Championship. Going into last night, most people expected the winner of McGregor and Poirier to compete for that vacated belt. I’m not sure it makes sense for that fight to feature McGregor since he just lost. So, would Poirier pass up a shot at the belt to finish this trilogy?
