“He hurt me, he is strong,” greeted Poirier after the fight, with respect for his French opponent. “I took this fight because he had finished his previous five before the limit, even if he was not very well known. He’s a dangerous guy. I have a lot of respect for Saint Denis, his state of mind. I would like to congratulate him for having defended his country, for his military past. He will come back,” he added. Dustin Poirier could have his chance for a belt in the coming months, having only been interim champion in the past.
