As Dustin Poirier prepares for his highly anticipated showdown against Benoit Saint Denis at UFC 299, his enduring connection with Conor McGregor continues to draw attention. While Poirier gears up for his return to the Octagon, McGregor's future in the sport remains shrouded in uncertainty.

Expressing frustration over the delays in securing his next fight, McGregor's recent comments have sparked speculation about his potential return to competition. Poirier, however, remains pragmatic about the situation, acknowledging the unpredictability of McGregor's future in the UFC.

In Poirier's own words, "Who knows? I’m a fan of the sport, so any time that guy fights, you know I’m watching. But your guess is as good as mine. Who knows if he ever comes back?"

While the spotlight remains on McGregor's next move, Poirier faces his own share of inquiries regarding his future in the sport, including the possibility of retirement. Clarifying his recent remarks about retirement, Poirier emphasizes the transient nature of MMA and maintains his focus on his upcoming bout.

Reflecting on his journey as he approaches his 30th UFC appearance, Poirier acknowledges the finite nature of his time in the sport. However, he remains steadfast in his pursuit of championship glory, with his sights set firmly on the UFC lightweight title.

"The undisputed world championship is like the last thing I really want to do in this sport," Poirier affirms, underscoring his unwavering commitment to his goals.

Looking ahead to UFC 299, Poirier is determined to make the most of his opportunity in the Octagon, recognizing that each fight brings him one step closer to his ultimate objective.
