UFC 264 is expected to produce the next challenger to lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, as Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor complete their trilogy in the main event. But could there be a wrinkle in those plans?
Few doubt Poirier will pursue the title if he wins. He could already have fought for the gold, but he chose the more lucrative option of facing McGregor a third time. But what if McGregor wins? Will he challenge Oliveira, or could he choose to complete another trilogy with a blockbuster against Nate Diaz?
