Dustin Poirier Fighter Record, Recent Fights & Tale of The Tape

When it comes to the UFC 264 main event, the casual fight fan is definitely familiar with one half of the fighters. Conor McGregor is still the biggest draw in the sport. But, his opponent, Dustin Poirier is the favorite.

Poirier isn’t a massive star. He isn’t loud mouthed and he doesn’t spend a lot of time pumping up his persona on social media or at weigh-ins. But, Poirier is a beast and Dustin Poirier’s fighter record is one that can match almost any.

Poirier, unlike some fighters that face McGregor, is not scared of the Irishman. As a matter of fact his last win, which came in January, was over McGregor as he lumped him up in a 2nd round TKO win. But UFC 264 will have crowds and the fanfare that accompanies a massive superfight.

How will Poirier respond? What impact will it all have on Dustin Poirier’s fighter record? Let’s take a look.
