UFC 257: Dustin Poirier Wants a Lightweight Title Shot, Not Money
Former interim UFC lightweight champion Dustin Poirier understands that if he goes to the main event of UFC 257 PPV on January 23 in Abu Dhabi and defeats Conor McGregor, the promotion will have no choice but to give him the next title chance at 155 pounds.

That's why Dustin is focused on winning, not getting revenge.

"This is not about payback," Poirier said last weekend. “This is not a rematch. Of course, these are very important to me. I go out there and beat him, it's all part of this game, things I'll think about and be happy about, but that's not my motivation every day. My main goal is to become a world champion, to be the best.”

The future of the current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov may depend on this.

McGregor stopped Poirier in their first meeting at UFC 178 back in 2014, when both fighters were promising, but a lot has changed since then. And Dustin needs to do something to get Conor out of the title race.

Especially after a resounding defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov.
