White appears to agree, and while McGregor’s timeline is unknown as he heads into surgery, he thinks another matchup would be logical.
“The fight didn’t get finished,” White told MMA Junkie and other reporters post-fight at UFC 264. “You can’t have a fight finish that way. We’ll see how this whole thing plays out. Who knows how long Conor’s out, so Poirier will do his thing until Conor’s ready.”
