Conor McGregor ‘ready to roll’ as UFC targets Dustin Poirier trilogy this summer, says president Dan White

Conor McGregor is eager to step back into the Octagon as soon as possible to complete his trilogy with Dustin Poirier, according to UFC president Dana White.

The 32-year-old’s appetite for that fight has not waned, White said, telling The Jim Rome Show: “Conor’s ready to roll. Conor wants to fight again.

“He wants the rematch with Dustin Poirier, and he wants it as soon as possible. We’re working on it. Hopefully this summer.

“I think the loss put him back into a really good place. It’s the classic Rocky III.

“You’re pulling up to the fight in yachts and covered in Versace and you got all the money in the world, it’s hard to stay hungry.”

‘Notorious’ (22-5) has lost three of his last six contests.
