Dustin Poirier couldn’t hold his emotions back when he revealed the disappointment in himself after the UFC on FUEL TV 3 loss opposite the Korean Zombie, Chan Sung Jung via Darce choke making his 1st main event appearance the fight of the night.

“I had a really long training camp and I put 100% of myself into the training camp … I care so much man, I let myself down. I deserved to win, my wife deserved for us to win.”

When asked about the pressure Dustin responded

“It wasn’t even the pressure.  I felt fine.  I was excited to fight the main event.  It was a huge opportunity for me.  I wasn’t worried about the 5 rounds my strength and conditioning program was incredible.  I felt like I was in the best shape ever.  I just took some bad shots made some mistakes but I’m going to go back in the gym and work on it and come back and get a W.”
