Tony Ferguson is on the comeback trail following his defeat by Justin Gaethje but he will not face Dustin Poirier, according to UFC supremo Dana White.
The lightweight was on the receiving end of a brutal beating from Gaethje at UFC 249 in Florida back in May.
Both Ferguson and Poirier have been crowned interim lightweight champions, but neither have been able to move to the next level and become undisputed king of the 155 pounders.
