Poirier/Diaz in the Next Six Weeks Possible, According to Poirier
By FCF Staff
In an interview with boxing legend/coach Teddy Atlas, Dustin Poirier mentioned that he is in preparation for a possible short notice fight against Nate Diaz in the next six weeks. Poirier said he has verbally agreed on his side. However, no contracts have been signed meaning nothing is official as of right now. If the fight does happen, Poirier confirmed that the fight would be staying place at welterweight(170lbs).
This fun matchup was originally in the works for UFC 230 back in 2018. But, Poirier had to pull out due to injury. Since then, both of their star powers have grown exponentially making this possible future bout an even bigger bout for the start of 2022. Linked at the bottom is a short clip from Dustin Poirier’s interview with Teddy Atlas, where he mentions the possible short notice bout with Nate Diaz.
