Conor McGregor is all set to face Dustin Poirier in a rematch bout at UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi next weekend.

Before the fight in an interview with Ariel Helwani, he listed names of many future contenders he wants to face. He is looking to run through every lightweight possible after the Dustin fight.

McGregor mentioned Nate Diaz, Michael Chandler, and Charles Oliveira; he is even ready to face the former interim lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson. Khabib Nurmagomedov believes that after the beating Tony took in the Gaethje fight he is finished, but McGregor claimed otherwise.

McGregor believes “El Cucuy: is still a solid fighter and one of the best-rounded fighters in the entire division. He is also looking forward to the Michael Chandler fight as he believes he is possibly looking to make a statement.

In the interview he said, “There are many exciting things. I don’t overlook guys that maybe had a little bit of slip in the division also because it happens in this game. I look at the likes of Tony Ferguson, I still think he’s a solid fighter.

“There’s a lot of things that have gone on between myself and Tony regarding the management situation over the years. I would be open to a Tony Ferguson bout also. And if the other guy [Khabib Nurmagomedov] has the balls to come back and step in, if he stops running away, we are here for that also.”
