– At UFC 242, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Dustin Poirier by submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:06 of Round 3 to retain the UFC lightweight championship.
Dustin Poirier mentioned retirement after his defeat but the American veteran has McGregor in his sights as he plots his return to the Octagon.
As noted former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor fires back and stated, “I fed you to the canvas in 90 seconds bro, You should have spoke my name with a bit more respect in that build up. ‘McGregor’s not next’ Motherfucker, it’s McGregor always! McGregor is the goal! Always! Say that now and I’ll think about it. #GoneIn90seconds #NicCage #AJolie.”

For those who are unaware, ahead of UFC 242, Conor McGregor stated the below statement.
“I’m not going to wait around [for Nurmagomedov],” he said ahead of UFC 242, If Dustin goes in and does it [beats Nurmagomedov] then it’s Dustin, it could be Nate, Jorge [Masvidal], I don’t know what size.”
“[I’ll fight] Anyone, Tony Ferguson, Justin Gaethje, [Max] Hollaway rematch, [Jose] Aldo rematch, there’s so many bouts for me, so many, It doesn’t matter about who, it just matters me getting back in there and being who I am, not a shell of myself.”
