Conor McGregor gives Dustin Poirier three dates in 2020 for showdown
Over to you, Dustin.
Conor McGregor has answered Dustin Poirier's posturing tweet by putting the ball firmly in his court.
Not only did The Notorious say he'd accepted a fight offer from the American, but he gave him three potential dates.
Just one catch. The fight has to take place in 2020.
On Wednesday night, Poirier went after McGregor on Twitter with a class call-out.
Hey @TheNotoriousMMA what's up

McGregor? He's not backing down from it.
He said he has accepted the offer and he's still willing to donated half a million to The Good Fight Foundation.
And the dates he has in mind are as follows:
- November 21
- December 12
- December 19
Hello Dustin! I accepted the @ufc offer to fight you, but told them it must happen in 2020. I’m ready for Nov 21st, given that cards recent injury issues, as well as any of the December dates, the 12th and the 19th. I’ll also still donate the $500k to The Good Fight Foundation 🙏 https://t.co/23hN4AHtoI

McGregor already took Poirier apart in less than two minutes back in 2014 when he was rising meteorically in the UFC.
His last fight was beating Cowboy Cerrone at the start of this year.
Poirier, 31, also lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in his second last fight. He beat Dan Hooker in June.
