Dustin Poirier Issues Challenge to Colby Covington, Stephen Thompson Responds Instead

Dustin Poirier may have an opponent for UFC 277 on July 30th.

Dustin Poirier issued a challenge to anyone, including Colby Covington for a fight and it looks like Poirier will be fighting at Welterweight, but it won’t be against Covington.

It only took 4 hours before the challenge was accepted by Stephen Thompson who respectfully requested to be the first man to welcome Poirier to the division.

No deal has been made yet, both fighters would have time to prepare and if the UFC can’t get Covington to sign the deal then they could book Poirier vs Thompson at UFC 277 on July 30th for International Fight Week.
