‘He won’t tell the true story,’ Dustin Poirier discusses his history with Nate Diaz, potential match-up

Dustin Poirier and Nate Diaz were supposed to meet in the Octagon at UFC 230 in 2018. However, that fight ended up being scrapped. Around the time this happened Poirier told media that the cancellation was due to a nagging hip injury.

Poirier told Ariel Helwani at the time that training through pain was normal, but that his hip wound up bothering him so much that he couldn’t appropriately prepare for the fight.

Three years later Poirier was one of the guests on the first episode of Helwani’s revived The MMA Hour show.
