What’s next for Dustin Poirier after his loss to Charles Oliveira at UFC 269?

UFC 269 was shut down last Saturday. night (December 11, 2021) inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, have a night full of action outstanding victory, epic knockout and the disturbance of bookie-busting to end the pay-per-view (PPV) vehicle of the year’s promotion.

Lots of boxers are left feeling blues after the bout, including fellow champion Amanda Nunes. “Lioness” lost her status as “champion” after losing the bantamweight belt to Julianna Pena, who forced the Brazilian to encounter a naked necklace behind her (see it).

And former 135-pound boxer Cody Garbrandt, who was defeated by Kai Kara France in his flyweight debut, leaving him with his fifth loss in his last six fights (summarize). But which fighter is suffering from one of the worst post-fight hangovers, now being dropped from the show for a few days?

Dustin Poirier.

More than two years after his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov, Poirier burst onto the scene on his way back to the grand prom, taking his chance to become the undisputed champion of the tournament. Poirier had tasted UFC gold before, although it was only temporary. While an impressive feat, that’s not why “The Diamond” was included in the fighting game.

Poirier starts off strong, ramping up speed and tagging Charles Oliveira early on, skipping “Do Bronx” on a couple of occasions along the way. In the process, the Louisianan also captured some of the champion’s best shots. Early in the third round, Poirier found himself with a human-like anaconda wrapped around his back. At that point, most people knew what would happen next because Oliveira suffocated the living, winning 19 of his battles through submission, 16 of them by a number. suffocation form.

A few minutes later, Oliveira got her second win in her submission, forcing Poirier to touch one (you guessed it) a smelly one standing behind. For Poirier, it was only his second loss in five years, but both were championship matches.

The loss left him in the dark about what he wants to do in the future in his combat sports career.

“I can do whatever I put my mind to. I can fight for another belt. I can continue another series. I can swipe and climb,” Poirier said about working his way back to a title fight. “Go back wherever I want. It’s just… do I want to? That was the question I had to look in the mirror and answer. Do I want to do it again, do I want to go down that road again.

“And that answer will come in the next few days, in the next few weeks. Just let this pass and see what comes next for me. But if that’s my heart and that’s what I want to do, I’ll be back here to fight for another world title.”

If after a few weeks Poirier decided he wanted to keep trying, perhaps a fight against Michael Chandler would have been made. Chandler also lost to Oliveira and most recently lost to Justin Gaethje. A win over Chandler would be a great way for Pairer to expedite the healing process and start his way back into another title war.

If Poirier doesn’t believe the fight will help his bottom line, then why not put him back to fight Nate Diaz? “The Diamond” was forced out of their first match due to injury, and both were took pictures together since then. It’s an easy sale, and a challenge that could put both competitors on their toes in the morning.
