    “No, I’m not retiring. I’m 32, man. I feel good. You see the way I’m moving out here today. I feel good. I’m having fun. If anything, I’ll go up. I’ll probably go to 170, if anything,” Poirier told MMAjunkie.com’s Danny Segura “But no, honestly, my goal isn’t to try to have the most successful title defenses. I don’t know. We’ll see."

    Hes too small for WW and if he wins, I’d want to see a champion actually defend. Hope Charles wins now so we can see defences

    Moneyfights and then retire.

    Good for him. Dustin won’t be around for much longer I suppose.

    Against the very best of 170, he wouldn't do well.
    Wouldn't mind watching him face elite strikers such as Wonderboy and maybe even Luque.

    He's just joking about 170

    And very honest about the belt

    No I don't think he is joking about 170lbs.

    Fair play to the man. Sick of starving himself to make the weight of a small boy

    "if anything"

    clearly he means later as cutting weight gets harder on you as you age he's probably already feeling the difference but that doesn't mean he'll do it for his next fight.

    Rewatching the first poirier gaethje fight, I honestly think Gaethje will win the rematch. To put it bluntly, Gaethje fought like an idiot the first fight and i've seen enough improvements from gaethje to suggest that he takes the rematch quite handily.
    If Poirier wins the belt and he goes to 170, he is a duck. Honestly, I'd actually think Oliveira has a good chance against Gaethje.

    Oh ya, Poirier is soooo scared of a guy he finished.

    Poirier, the guy who is undefeated in rematches, is sooo scared of fighting a guy he has already beat.

    “Ducking” a guy you already beat, one of my personal favourite sherdog idiocies.

    Dustin isnt champ material
    Charles strangles him handily

    If by some miracle he pulls it off in December, McGregor and Gaethje are coming for him at 155, and Colby at 170. Nowhere to hide. Should start dieting post-fight right away. But I see him retiring, win or lose.

    Well, he does hit harder and has a more devastating striking arsenal.
    Not a fun fight for Poirier regardless of the outcome, that much is for sure.
