Dustin Poirier recently took to Twitter to suggest the creation of a 165 pound division in the UFC, he’s volunteering that him and Nate Diaz open the division up. Dustin Poirier will be be fighting Nate Diaz at UFC 230. The fight will be at a 155 pounds. UFC 230 is still without a main event.
A 165 pound division would give fighters who have a hard time cutting to 155 but who are to small for 170, some better options. Kevin Lee is another UFC fighter who has been campaigning for a 165 pound division.
