UFC veteran Dustin Poirier made his return to lightweight last year at ‘UFC FN: Mendes vs. Lamas’ in April as he knocked out Carlos Diego Ferreira in the 1st round. Following that fight, Poirier went on to defeat Yancy Medeiros via TKO, and Joseph Duffy via decision.
The return to lightweight has been viewed as a bit of a career resurgence for Poirier, who put together an impressive run at featherweight for several years, but fell short of becoming a #1 contender.
Poirier, who is currently gearing up to fight Bobby Green at UFC 199 on June 4th, posted a photo to Twitter showing himself after a strength & conditioning workout looking absolutely RIPPED.
