Well a lot of us was hoping to hear the UFC announce the news of a 165 pound weight class. That never happen, that was just Dustin and Nate trolling, or trying to generate some hype. That’s ok though, we still have a sick match up, yeah, not anymore. Dustin Poirier has been forced to pull out of his upcoming fight against Nate Diaz.
No word yet on what the injury is, just that he won’t be able to take the fight. Fans were afraid that Nate might not show up, he has been upset about the way the UFC promoted him, or something like that. Instead it’s Dustin who won’t be able to fight. Lets see if Nate takes a replacement fight.
