Rumours

UPDATE 1st March 2022: Rafael Dos Anjos has accepted a potential co-main event fight against Islam Makhachev, but could we actually see it a week after Islam last fought?!


UPDATE 28th December 2021: Dustin Poirier is reportedly up for another quick fight following his loss to Charles Oliveira at UFC 269.

Poirier has claimed that Nate Diaz has turned down the offer for the contest, despite the fact that UFC President Dana White is “open” to the idea of the bout.

“He doesn’t want it,” Poirier wrote on social media. “Maybe UFC 271 they couldn’t make it happen on 270. I said yes.” It’s looking like if the fight is confirmed, that it may well be the main event of UFC 272.

Poirier also confirmed that he has no interest in another direct rematch against Conor McGregor. “I’m not fighting Conor until his leg grows back and he beats some people so we know he can even fight” Poirier noted.

We will update this page as and when there are any rumours surrounding the UFC 272 fight card, specifically the main event!
