Although not officially announced by the UFC, both men have publicly agreed to the fight and the betting markets are already open.
After agreeing to the fight for charity, the promotion kicked in to host the clash of old rivals and easy competitors.
And with a date set in stone, it looks like McGregor’s return to the cage is as good as confirmed.
According to Paddy Power, McGregor is an 8/15 early price to get the job done on Jan 23rd.
However, Poirier is not a total underdog and very strong in the market with a price tag of 6/4.
And McGregor predicted that history will repeat itself when he faces Dustin Poirier on January 23rd.
The 32-year-old shared his own poster for the fight after accepting a UFC offer to face the man he defeated on his way to becoming a two-weight champion six years ago.
He went on Instagram to post a seemingly unofficial poster for the fight that got McGregor slapped Poirier and wrote, “Another dust for Dustin, incoming.”
The Notorious was fresh from his famous UFC Dublin win over Diego Brandao when he last fought Poirier in September 2014.
He gave the American his first UFC loss on that occasion with a KO / TKO stop in the first round in Las Vegas.
The 31-year-old Louisian has had a good career since that defeat and is currently the second greatest fighter in the UFC lightweight standings.
McGregor had expressed his desire to fight again before the end of the year, but his octagonal return will now be in early 2021, almost exactly a year since his 40-second demolition of Donald Cerrone.
He has stated that he would like the fight to take place at the 80,000-seat AT&T stadium in Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys, before going on to fight Manny Pacquiao in a boxing match later the next year.
The Dubliner tweeted: “I accept, January 23rd is open! My goal is to see this fight in the cowboy stadium. Right style!
“Jerry Jones is a friend and the stadium can hold our audience. I will be ready for Texas and Texas will be ready for my fans! Then Manny. ”
