When the news broke that Joseph Duffy had suffered a concussion during a recent sparring session and was medically unfit for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night Dublin main event against Dustin Poirier, interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor offered to step in as Duffy’s replacement… for a price.

“The Notorious” went on Twitter following the announcement and said he’d be willing to give Poirier a rematch. The two fought at UFC 178 in September 2014 with McGregor scoring a first-round technical knockout over “The Diamond.” So there was no trepidation on his part to offer a rematch, although we all know that the UFC was unlikely to pull the trigger on such a bout.

I will give peanut another crack at the King no sweat. I’ll take the gate. It’s my gate anyway. A cool 7. Cash. See you at the weigh ins.

McGregor also took a shot at Duffy, the last fighter to defeat him. Duffy holds a submission win over the Irishman from a Cage Warriors bout back in 2010.
