Dana White: McGregor - Poirier winner likely to get Title shot
At the moment, there is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight division. Because the current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has ended his career and is leaving UFC 29-0, 13-0. According to UFC president Dana White, what happens next at 155 pounds will depend on what comes out of his meeting with the Eagle in a couple of weeks on Fight Island.

” I'm getting on a plane on Monday and heading to Abu Dhabi, I don't know when Khabib will arrive there, but we'll meet him as soon as he arrives, " White said during a recent conversation with a journalist.

Meanwhile, the 155-pound division still has to move forward, and the big fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, due to take place at UFC 257, on January 23, 2021, will likely determine the next contender for the title in this division.

” I don't know if they'll be ranked or something, but yes, whoever wins this fight will probably be next in line, " White added.

However, if Khabib decides to return for another fight, he has repeatedly stated that he is not interested in a rematch against Conor or Dustin, as he has already finished both of them.
