After Poirier’s defeat in Abu Dhabi, where the American Top Team product lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in result to a submission in the third round.
Poirier didn’t take much time and quickly took it to Instagram to release a statement and thanked Khabib for the fight and the lesson it taught.
“Everything happens for a reason. This is my journey and it’s unique. Thank you Khabib for another tough life lesson. No excuses no regrets. Gonna take my lumps and keep it moving.

“I’m familiar with adversity,” Poirier said at the UFC 242 post-fight press conference. “It’s just I have to live the rest of my life asking myself if I could have done more, if I could have maybe escaped some of those take downs. If I could have pushed harder when I had my underhooks against the fence. Those are the questions that will haunt me. I’ve lost before.”
As of yet we’re confused, what is next for Poirier? The fighter hinted retirement but also asked for a Connor Mcgregor rematch.
