The day after a difficult defeat for Benoît Saint-Denis. The French fighter, beaten by KO by Dustin Poirier on Saturday in Miami in front of Donald Trump, failed to dominate No. 3 in the UFC lightweight rankings (-70 kg). “My body did not respond after a week of antibiotics to fight an infection,” he explains on social networks. I was present but my body was absent, it did not react as usual. I only had one round to give you. Sorry to have disappointed you. I will come back stronger, thanks to Dustin for accepting this fight. It was impossible for me not to seize the opportunity of such a fight.” He will now have to bounce back and fight one after another before having another chance to face the best in his category.

“He is definitely one of the best fighters in the world,” said UFC boss Dana White about the Frenchman. As I told you at the start of the press conference, Poirier delivered another legendary performance. He took himself to another level. Poirier is one of the best, that doesn’t tarnish the image of Benoît Saint Denis at all, not even a little bit. He just needs to get back into the swing of things and win a few fights. He will learn from this.”
