Poirier Out Of UFC 230


Poirier has been pulled from the card due to an undisclosed injury suffered in training per ESPN and MMA Fighting.

With no replacement set as of Poirier’s removal, the status of Nate Diaz is uncertain, and may lead to Diaz waiting until 2019 to make his return to the Octagon.

The two were set to meet in a highly anticipated showdown, with both fighters publicly calling for it to be the event’s main event and for the fight set for a new 165 pound title.
