He is coming off of a win from UFC 281.

Dustin Poirier has been hospitalized. 

The former interim lightweight champion revealed on social media that he has been diagnosed with a staph infection. He’s been keeping fans up to date. 

Staph infections are common in sports, requiring medical treatment and antibiotics. It is contagious and can spread to the bloodstream and may cause blood poisoning known as sepsis. 

Poirier is coming off of a dominant win over former Bellator champion Michael C handler. He submitted via rear-naked choke in the third round of UFC 281 last month at Madison Square Garden. 

Poirier, who is No. 2 in the UFC’s lightweight rankings, previously told FIGHT SPORTS that he wants to continue to cement his name in MMA lightweight history and wants to become an undisputed lightweight champion.
