The UFC 300 bout date has been teased by Dustin Poirier, who has stated that a large former UFC star could be a potential opponent.

There is a possibility that Dustin Poirier may compete in UFC 300, which is going to be the most successful event in the history of the promotion.

The historic pay-per-view card is slated to take place in April of 2024, and it is within the realm of possibility that ‘The Diamond’ will be a part of the historic event. Poirier, who had previously given light on negotiations with Dana White, the CEO of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, regarding appearing on the card, also called out a potential opponent for the Fight Night 300 event.

Nate Diaz, a former opponent of the lightweight contender, posted a message on X, in which he called out the former UFC star.

There was a time when Dustin Poirier and Diaz were supposed to compete against each other inside the octagon at UFC 230 in 2018. However, because to a hip injury, “The Diamond” was unable to participate in the fight, and as a result, their fight was called off.

Fans have reason to believe that the two fighters might still potentially face each other inside the octagon, despite the fact that the fight was never rescheduled. Both men have continued to call each other out on occasion because they have continued to call each other out.

In light of the fact that Nate Diaz has communicated his desire to rejoin the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) after leaving the organization a year ago, the UFC 300 event would be the ideal occasion for him to accomplish so.

Dustin Poirier entertains possibly facing Conor McGregor for a fourth time

Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier have competed against each other in the octagon on three separate occasions.

During the first time they faced one other, which was at UFC 178 in 2014, both of these fighters were thought to be featherweight prospects at the time. As a result of his forecast that they would fight, “The Notorious” was able to successfully knock out Poirier in the first round of their fight.

Following the conclusion of their featherweight encounter, both competitors went on to do remarkable things in their respective careers and fought each other again at UFC 257 in 2021. With a knockout victory in the second round over the Irishman, “The Diamond” exacted his vengeance, bringing the score equal and establishing a trilogy fight as a natural consequence.

Due to a leg injury sustained by Conor McGregor at the conclusion of Round 1 at UFC 264, the third fight, which was highly anticipated by fans and both competitors, did not conclude as the fans and fighters had hoped it would.

The fight between Dustin Poirier and “The Notorious” has resulted in a technical knockout victory for Poirier, who presently holds a 2-1 record against “The Diamond.” Poirier has also indicated his desire to fight “The Diamond” for a fourth time.

When questioned about the possibility of another fight with McGregor, Poirier responded as follows during a recent interview with ESPN Mixed Martial Arts:

It is highly likely that I would make an effort to silence him once and for all… Even though I don’t really see any other reason for it, that would be a massive fight. He has a 2-1 advantage over me, so that would be a huge battle.
