McGregor Still Hasn’t Signed Poirier Contract.

There’s a little chance that Conor McGregor might not sign an offered contract to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 257. This information comes after Dana White provided updates on the second fight between Conor McGregor & Dustin Poirier. Issues don’t surround Poirier, who has signed his contract and ready to compete against the Notorious Irishman by January 23rd. Contractual problems surround McGregor, who hasn’t signed for unknown reasons. Inside sources suggest that Conor is demanding more massive payouts from Dana White, with the UFC President refusing to budge.

Conor McGregor has minimal time until the signing date will pass, forcing him to wait a prolonged period until Dana White offers him another fight. This means that the Notorious Irishman has several days to finalize his contract or face monetary losses. Most have forgotten with the announcement of Conor McGregor & Dustin Poirier 2 that the Irishman retired for the 3rd time in 2020. Most supporters are disgusted by Notorious McGregor extensively using retirement to evoke higher paydays. Some MMA analysts anticipate that viewership for McGregor will drastically be lower in 2021, which would follow suit with his appearances on UFC-related programming. Viewership on those programs grows smaller with each appearance of McGregor.

White has Confidence

MMA Reporters pressed UFC President Dana White for details regarding McGregor’s contractual signed. Dana White informed reporters that he isn’t aware if Conor has signed the contract, or not. The UFC President mentioned he isn’t concerned about the fight not happening & indicated that negotiations between McGregor hadn’t gone this far without him competing. Dana White promised that regardless of what happens between now and January 23rd, he’ll expect that McGregor will show at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. Dana White noted his assumption of Conor signing the contract already, and that they’ve texted each other with the clarification that negotiations are done.

This guarantees supporters of the Ultimate Fighting Championship that the over-glorified Conor “Notorious” McGregor will compete at the UFC 257 Pay-Per-View. Supporters won’t be surprised if & when Conor defeats Dustin Poirier at the upcoming January 23rd PPV. Their last match saw Notorious outmatch & outrank Dustin Poirier.
