Dustin Poirier Appears To Be Up For One More UFC Fight

Dustin Poirier was one of the UFC’s analysts at this past weekend’s UFC 303 event during the promotion’s International Fight Week celebrations in Las Vegas, and though he’d recently been hinting at retirement it seems the show may have given him a taste for getting back into the Octagon himself one more time.

“Uno mas [One more],” Poirier wrote on X as he was on a flight back home from Las Vegas.

Poirier then confirmed that he was talking about fighting with a follow-up comment to a fan who had suggested he was just coming back for the money.

“I’m cool I don’t need the cash I just want the blood,” Poirier stated.

“The Last Dance,” the 35-year-old also wrote in a separate post. “Let em know.”

And Poirier also took the opportunity to take a dig at his old rival Conor McGregor.

“Hey @TheNotoriousMMA it felt so nice, I did it twice ya bumskie,” Poirier wrote to McGregor, referring to his two TKO victories over the superstar in 2021.

Poirier also appeared to be up for the idea of fighting current lightweight champion Islam Makhachev again, despite having been submitted by him just a month ago.

“If arman [Tsarukyan] can’t fight let’s go again @MAKHACHEVMMA,” Poirier stated.

It’s a curious pair of call-outs given that it’s unclear when McGregor will return and the fight with Chandler would surely have to happen first, while there’s also very little chance of him getting another title shot against Makhachev at this stage.

That being said, there are plenty of other fights for a high-profile star like Poirier if he has come to the realization that he doesn’t want to call time on his career just yet.
