Dustin Poirier has revealed the name of the next opponent!

The defeat by Charles Oliveira in the UFC lightweight champion match no doubt fell hard on Dustin Poirier. His fans feared that Dustin Poirier could retire after another defeat in the title match. However, Dustin Poirier has no plans to retire, and he seems to have quickly regained his motivation as well.

More precisely, one potential match makes him motivated. During a guest appearance on the podcast The Fight with Teddy Atlas, Dustin Poirier explained exactly what it was about. "One thing that brought fire back to me was a phone call I made a few days ago.

I can't talk about it yet. It's a 'short notice' fight. It’s something I normally hate, but we’ll see what happens." "I don’t want to give a lot of information because I don’t know what to say.

The contract has not been signed yet, but I will probably accept that offer." "I should go for a run right away because that match is so close. It's a very exciting fight, Nate Diaz is the opponent, but I won't say what the event is and the date, '' Dustin Poirierrevealed.

Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier have been calling each other names for some time, and they have owed us a fight since November 2018.

The two fighters were then supposed to cross gloves at the UFC 230 event, but Dustin Poirier had to cancel his performance due to a hip injury. Yet, after more than three years, it seems like we will finally have a chance to watch this potentially fantastic match.

We hope for an official announcement as soon as possible, after which we will all know a lot more information, as well as the category in which it will be calculated. Dustin Poirier said after the defeat by Charles Oliveira that he was not sure if he would perform more in the lightweight category.

Nate Diaz, as always, certainly doesn't care if it's welterweight or lightweight. We are all aware of the qualities they both possess and how much they can do in the ring. Dustin Poirier suffered a defeat in the last match and it is certain that this could affect his performance in the next one.

However, Dustin Poirier has been here for a long time and has shown as much as he can, so we have no doubt that this time he will do his best and be a candidate for the title again.
