Both men have a good track record of gaining weight and playing in matches, but in the era of COVID-19, anything can happen at any time.
That’s why 51-year-old White is struggling to find an alternative fighter in case one of his opponents is pulled out of the card at the last minute.
However, he claims that no one is currently in that position.
“Actually, I’m looking for someone to back up the card right now. No one is popping out. No one kicks my door.” UFC The president told Bleacher Report Tom Taylor in a recent interview.
When asked if the Poirier vs. McGregor 3 winner would then wear a lightweight belt to fight Charles Oliveira, White replied that he didn’t take that into account.
“I don’t know. I have to watch this match and see what happens,” he said.
July 10, UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3 will be held at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
