The Irishman announced on Twitter that he will fight Poirier on January 23, 2021 and hopes to stage the fight in the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium.
“I accept, Jan 23rd is on!” the 32-year-old said. “My goal is to see this fight take place in Cowboy stadium. Proper Style! Jerry Jones is a friend and the stadium can hold our crowd. I will be ready for Texas and Texas will be ready for my fans! Then Manny.”
Poirier responded to McGregor on Twitter: “Close to home for me on my birthday weekend! What weight?”
