Conor McGregor’s return to the UFC appears to be closer to fact than at any point in most modern months, with the feeble light-weight and featherweight champion asserting Thursday that he’s agreed to battle Dustin Poirier.

Alternatively, there’s a distinction between opponents asserting they’ve agreed to a battle on Twitter and in actuality inserting pen to paper to build it genuine.

Can this matchup in actuality come to fruition for UFC 255 on Nov. 21 or UFC 256 on Dec. 12, as McGregor explicitly requested?
