Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Dustin Poirier keeps moving.
Although the undisputed crown has so far eluded him, the former interim champion has established himself as one of the finest lightweights to ever step into the Octagon. He’s knocked out former champions like Conor McGregor, Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis, and has really only fought the best for over a decade now.
The fan favorite is more than just a fighter. He auctioned off his fight kits for local food banks and started his own charitable foundation, Good Fight Foundation, which helps around Lafayette, Louisiana.
More recently, Poirier started his own hot sauce business. To that end, Poirier has just taken a significant step forward with this business venture, as he has partnered with the UFC to become the “Official Hot Sauce of the UFC”.
“It means a lot to have Poirier’s Louisiana Style named the very first Official UFC Hot Sauce,” Poirier said in the official press release. “Put in to work – whether it’s training for the next fight, starting a hot sauce business, or helping out through our Good Fight Foundation – it’s about creating a legacy for my family and my community. These hot sauces are from the kitchen I grew up with in Lafayette, Louisiana. These are my roots and I’m thrilled that UFC fans share the Cajun flavors that I love.
Poirier fights this weekend at UFC 281 against Michael Chandler, a self-proclaimed fan Poirier hot sauce. If he’s able to dispatch “Iron,” Poirier is back in the title mix at 155 pounds after falling short last year to Charles Oliveira.

The idea that there are black belts in jiu-jitsu who can’t defend themselves on the streets because they’re training a sportier variety of BJJ is one of the silliest notions in the community. grapples. People who know how to Berimbolo and reverse can also probably handle an arm drag or closed guard and other fundamentals.
Slips, tears and KO clips
For this writer, the most inspiring performance in UFC history. Well, it’s either that or Darren Elkins versus Mirsad Bektic.

As mentioned last night, Poirier has been out of it for a very long time and has some quality wins that have almost been forgotten.
