Dustin Poirier is an American professional mixed martial artist. He is a former Interim UFC Lightweight Champion. As of May 9, 2022, he is #2 in the UFC lightweight rankings and as of October 24, 2022, he is #11 in the UFC men's pound-for-pound rankings.
Combat Approach
Poirier holds a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu under Tim Credeur, but mostly finished his opponents through his proficiency in the striking arts since the early days of his career in the UFC. His boxing skills are lauded, and he has showcased them in significant victories over elite-level strikers such as Justin Gaethje, Eddie Alvarez, Dan Hooker, Max Holloway, and Conor McGregor. He is noted for his shifting punching style and extensive use of the shoulder roll.
Fighter Trivia
Poirier still spends most of his time in Lafayette with his wife Jolie and their daughter, but trains at American Top Team in South Florida, where he relocates before fights. The couple had their first child, Parker Noelle Poirier, on August 20, 2016. Currently, his chest and arms are covered in tattoos, including one on his chest that reads 武士道 , which means "the way of warriors" in Japanese.
