Since his arrival in the UFC, Irishman Conor McGregor has made a huge impression.

He has not only impressed inside the Octagon but also became the Featherweight division's 'Chael Sonnen' as he caused the whole of the division out, insulting each fighter.

In just his third fight within the Zuffa ranks, McGregor will headline his first card when he meets Cole Miller. 

As he has already stated, McGregor is already looking past his next opponent. The next fighter he wants after Miller - providing he wins-  is Dustin Poirier.

Speaking on the MMAHour, McGregor said: "I want Dustin. I want Dustin real bad."

Poirier, at just 25, is 8-2 in the UFC. He's known for exciting fights inside the Octagon and is currently ranked at number five.

If McGregor wants a title shot against Featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the near future, he must beat top class opponents and Poirier is one of those.

McGregor vs Miller is the main event at UFC Fight Night 46 in Dublin on July 19. Also on the card will be a Flyweight bout between Brad Pickett and Ian McCall.
