For those hoping to see Conor McGregor try and avenge another loss to Dustin Poirier, you may have to wait until winter.
McGregor took to Twitter to provide an update on his recovery from the gruesome injury he suffered in the Octagon last month. In doing so, he shot down the rumor that he will be ready to fight Poirer for a fourth time as soon as September.
So when will McGregor-Poirier part four take place? It sounds like the 33-year-old won’t be ready to go until “October at earliest.” In all likelihood, McGregor won’t be able to give it a go until November or December.
“Guys, the September date is too early for me. I am still in recovery,” McGregor said on Twitter. “My docs/physical therapy team out here advice me to stay. I reckon late October at earliest. But maybe November/December too. It is hard to say at this time a concrete date. But I’m in! Wait for me please!”

A fourth fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier is going to happen. The two couldn’t stop chirping at each other even after McGregor went down with an injury and Poirier was named victor in their latest bout.
McGregor shouldn’t rush back into action, though. He’s lost three of his last four fights. Two of his losses came to Poirier. The other came against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor’s legacy will be forever tarnished if he loses another fight to Poirier, marking three losses to the same opponent in the same year. It looks like he’s willing to take the risk, though.
It sounds like McGregor will fight Poirier somewhere in October to December of this year.
