Dustin Poirier Has a Two Word Response to Question Regarding Justin Gaethje Fight

Earlier, it was reported that Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje were in talks to face each other in a rematch at UFC 278.

Currently ranked #2 in the UFC's lightweight rankings, Dustin Poirier is sitting without a confirmed next fight.

He is coming off a second round submission loss against Charles Oliveira, having last competed at UFC 269 in December of 2022.

Meanwhile, Justin Gaethje is ranked #3 in the UFC's lightweight rankings.

He is coming off a first round submission loss against Charles Oliveira, having last competed at UFC 274.

Will we ever see Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje 2?

There's every possibility we could see both the fighters compete inside the Octagon once again. As it stands right now, UFC has not approached Poirier for the rematch.

The former interim lightweight champion confirmed this on Twitter. Responding to a fan who asked him whether he was offered to fight Gaethje, Poirier said, "lol no."

Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje shared the UFC Octagon back in April of 2018 where Poirier got the better of Gaethje via TKO in the fourth round.
