Dustin Poirier won’t get his rematch with Eddie Alvarez just yet, but a pretty nice concession is in the works. A fight between Poirier (22-5 MMA, 14-4 UFC) and Justin Gaethje (18-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is in the works for spring, according to two people with knowledge of the situation, who told MMAjunkie the bout could take place as early as UFC 222 or an event in April. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC has yet to make the matchup public. Bout sheets have yet to be signed, but verbal agreements are in place.
