Covington Vs Poirier Might Be Next

The long run beef between Dustin Poirier and Colby Covington has come to the light again.

Dustin Poirier last week shared a tweet accepting the match against Colby Covington.

However, it seems The Diamond isn't really thrilled about the offer.

Poirier stated that fighting Colby wasn't his first choice.

He addressed it in an interview - "It was either wait till the end of the year and fight for the #1 contender at lightweight, or fight July against him and that was the name that they gave me."

Poirier also added that he doesn't want Colby to make fortune out of fighting him.

Poirier shares bad-blood with his rival for some time now. It all started when Covington mocked the former's family.

Colby, on the other hand, has been up for the fight since forever.

There aren't any confirmed update on the match being fixed for UFC 277 as of now.

It will be interesting to see the former rivals lock horns inside the cage. Are you excited to see Poirier vs Covington match-up?
