A rough weight cut has led Dustin Poirier to the lightweight division.

Poirier (16-4) confirmed the news via Instagram recently, stating he was walking around now at 180 pounds and the cut to 145 was just too much on his body.

“The Diamond” had won three straight prior to the first round TKO loss to McGregor this past September, including finishes of Akira Corassani and Diego Brandao. He turns 26 in January and is 8-3 in 11 Octagon appearances.

This is why I'm moving up! I'm going to perform better! Let's go!!
