It’s Good For Our Division

Poirier — the #4 ranked lightweight who’s headlining the UFC on FOX 30 card this weekend against 3rd ranked Eddie Alvarez — says he didn’t want McGregor behind bars — despite the Barclays Center melee.
“I’m happy that he’s free of all that stuff now. Like I said, the division can get moving. It’s been top heavy and not moving for awhile.”
Poirier says after he beats up Alvarez … he wants the winner of Conor-Khabib (assuming the fight goes down).
“I don’t about what’s going on with Eddie and what happens with him, but when I win this fight, I’m next in line.”
