Dustin Poirier hints at UFC rematch with Conor McGregor and says 'anything is possible' over FOURTH fight
DUSTIN POIRIER says ‘anything is possible’ when quizzed about a fourth fight with Conor McGregor.
Diamond secured a TKO victory when the Irishman broke his left leg seconds before the end of the first round of their trilogy fight on Saturday.
Notorious, who earned £3.61m from the showdown, started the fight well, landing a number of heavy kicks before jumping for a guillotine and being punished with ground and pound.
He left the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on a stretcher and underwent surgery on Sunday.
The disappointing ending to the showdown left many feeling let down, but the victorious American threw open the door to a fourth clash afterwards.
When asked by TMZ Sports, Poirier said: “Anything is possible.
“I just have to get with my family, and see what's next.
“You never wanna see someone injured like that. The recovery is gonna be hard and losing.”
Poirier will now face lightweight champion Charles Oliveira – with UFC president Dana White revealing McGregor will face the winner of that showdown.
He said: “It's not the way you want to see fights end. Dustin Poirier will fight for the title.

“And when Conor is healed and ready to go, you do the rematch I guess. I don't know.
“The fight didn't get finished.
“You can't have a fight finish that way.
“So we'll see how this whole things plays out. Who knows how long Conor is out [for]?
“Poirier will do his thing until Conor is ready.”
