Interim UFC Lightweight champ Dustin Poirier claims it has scored 176 pounds against Max Holloway



Dustin Poirier was considerably thicker than Max Holloway in their intervening light title of UFC 236 and "The Diamond" assumed on social media that he weighed a whopping 176 pounds on battle night – that is 21 pounds heavier than 155 pounds weight loss. "This last," Poirier said in response to a fan on Monday night.

Although Holloway, the reining springweight champion, has struggled to make the cut to 155 pounds in the past but the Hawaiian was definitely the smaller man at UFC 236.

Poirier seemed to brush off and go through most Holloway's strike while landing significantly harder blows and kicks by itself.

Poirier, competing for 1

45 pounds, won bout by unanimous decision and is expected to challenge official lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a title association later this year.

Holloway will move back to featherweight where he will defend his title against former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar at UFC 240. The payment plan is scheduled to take place on July 27 at Rogers Place in Alberta, Canada.
