The fighter extended his toughs, reports MMA Junkie:
“I spoke to Sean (Shelby) last night,” Poirier revealed. “I know that they offered him this fight in California in May or International Fight Week, so we’ll see. We’ll see if he takes it, but the offer is out there. I think they told me they were going to give him two weeks. If they didn’t hear, they’re going to move on from it. We’ll see. I don’t know exactly what’s going on with the whole thing.”
“Last time was a mess,” he said. “I don’t care what he says, he knows the truth. It was a mess. They were offering me Kevin Lee as a replacement, and it just fell apart. I don’t know. If he says “yes”, I expect him to show up.”
