By FCF Staff

UFC 199 has picked up an intriguing lightweight fight, as the promotion has confirmed that Dustin Poirier will take on fellow lightweight contender Bobby Green at the event.

Poirier (19-4) is riding a three fight winning streak since he elected to move up to 155. Most recently, Poirier worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Joseph Duffy in January.

Green (23-6), meanwhile, hasn’t fought since November, 2014, when he was decisioned by Edson Barboza. Prior to that he had won 8 straight.

Poirier is currently ranked #10 at 155 and Green is sitting in the #12 position.

UFC 199 will be hosted by the Forum in Los Angeles on June 4th. In the main event, middleweight champ Luke Rockhold will battle Chris Weidman.
