Hold on a sec… I think Eddie Alvarez dropped a hint that he and Dustin Poirier will be getting it on again. Poirier has been roasting Alvarez online, saying he won’t sign to fight him. Alvarez had responded by saying he wouldn’t entertain any fights until he signed a new contract with the UFC. Dana White said he met with Team Alvarez this week and talked about basketball and fighting. Now, it seems that Alvarez and the UFC have possibly come to terms.
Alvarez put out a little feeler tweet to Poirier a couple of hours ago.

This must be a VERY recent development because 19 hours ago, Poirier tweeted this.
Shirt should say 25x didn't sign the contract https://t.co/FpAxRfm4Qg

All of the banter back and forth, combined with their unresolved first fight, makes this scrap a necessity. Their first fight was an absolute barnburner and we should expect the second one to be no different.
Please let it be true.
