Dustin Poirier ‘Taking Some Time Off’ After Recent Loss To Cub Swanson

Dustin Poirier believes he needs some extended gym minutes going forward to better prepare himself for a run at the UFC featherweight title.

Following a recent loss to Cub Swanson, Poirier stated on Twitter his plans to take an extended absence from competing and re-invent his game.

Poirier, who was on the cusp of competing for the title before a loss last year to Chan Sung Jung, added, “Gonna rededicate myself to the sport I love.”

The 24-year-old moved to Florida and joined up with American Top Team prior to a December win over Jonathan Brookins. He is 13-3 in his career.
