Callout Collection: Who UFC Boston winners want next – and how likely they’ll get them

Earning wins in the UFC is certainly no easy task, but what comes next is often even more important: the post-fight callout.

So after Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 6 event in Boston, who took advantage of their time on the mic? See below for this week’s Callout Collection – and just how realistic each one is.

He had previously called Poirier out on numerous occasions, but Poirier didn’t seem too interested. But, after moving one step...
