Longtime UFC light-weight contender Dustin Poirier, who began his profession at 145 kilos, is beginning to look an increasing number of like a welterweight within the last chapter of his MMA profession, not too long ago posting a “bulking” pic forward of his 2022 return.
“The Diamond,” who turns 33 in only a few days, has contemplated a bounce to 170 kilos previously, however it will most likely take the suitable opponent (like this trash-talking rival) for the No. 2-ranked light-weight to lastly pull the set off.
“We should always have a weight class between 155 and 170,” Poirier beforehand wrote on Twitter. “162 lbs or 165 lbs can be excellent. I’d by no means lower to 155 ever once more.”
UFC refuses to make any “nutty” modifications to its present weight courses, which leaves these combatants searching for extra choices to think about different promotions, just like the fighter-friendly Eagle Combating Championship, run by former UFC light-weight Khabib Nurmagomedov.
A date and opponent for Poirier’s return have but to be finalized.
