Dustin Poirier’s Early Life and Career

Dustin Poirier was born in Lafayette, Louisiana, on January 19, 1989, to parents of Acadian French origin. The many street fights that he was involved in caused him to drop out of Northside High School, which he had attended for a short time when he was a teenager on several occasions.

Poirier began his career as a mixed martial arts (MMA) competitor in 2009. Throughout a short period, he amassed a remarkable seven-point victory record while competing mostly in regional promotions around Louisiana and the Southern United States. In 2010, Poirier made his debut in World Extreme Cagefighting and was defeated by Danny Castillo by a unanimous decision. This was Poirier’s first loss throughout his career. Later on in the year, he made a comeback by claiming victory over Zach Micklewright by technical knockout at WEC 52.

Poirier won his maiden lightweight fight in 2015 thanks to a knockout victory in the first round against Carlos Diego Ferreira. He also won the award for Performance of the Night for his successful performance. Following that, he defeated Yancy Medeiros by technical knockout in the first round, which won him another bonus for Performance of the Night. At the beginning of 2016, Poirier triumphed over Joseph Duffy. Following that, in June, he triumphed over Bobby Green at UFC 199. Michael Johnson emerged victorious against Poirier in September. In his subsequent bout, which took place at the beginning of 2017, he engaged in a nasty encounter against Jim Miller, whom he finally defeated after suffering major injuries. Following his recovery, he competed against Eddie Alvarez in a fight that was ruled a no-contest in the end. Poirier defeated Anthony Pettis via technical knockout in his last bout of the year, which took place in November.

Dustin Poirier’s Ultimate Fighting Championship, 2011-2017

After World Extreme Cagefighting merged with the Ultimate Fighting Championship in late 2010, Poirier began competing in the UFC. He made his debut in the promotion on New Year’s Day in 2011, stepping in for the injured José Aldo in a match against Josh Grispi. Poirier ultimately won the fight. He went on to defeat Jason Young, Pablo Garza, and Max Holloway. In May of 2012, Poirier was beaten by Chan Sung Jung in a match that earned Fight of the Night honors. Closing out the year, Poirier defeated Jonathan Brookins. In his first fight of 2013, he fell to Cub Swanson. Poirier came back strong in his next bout to beat Erik Koch. At the end of 2013, he defeated Diego Brandão via knockout. The next year, Poirier had a strong win over Akira Corassani, earning him his second Fight of the Night bonus. However, in his next match, he lost via TKO to Conor McGregor. Following that loss, he moved up in weight class to the lightweight division.

Dustin Poirier’s Jolie’s support has been invaluable to his achievement as one of the most successful fighters in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Not only does she routinely post encouraging remarks on social media, but she can even be seen cheering him on outside of the ring during his bouts to show her support.

Additionally, the pair was a member of a group that purchased a wine store, and they have also been involved in the establishment of a charitable organization known as The Good Fight Foundation. At times when they are not working, they take pleasure in traveling together, and Jolie often posts photographs of the pair when they are on vacation in places like Jamaica and the Bahamas.

Dustin Poirier’s Last Fight

The Prudential Center in Newark served as the venue for the bout that took place between Islam Makhachev and Dustin Poirier at UFC 302. The current lightweight champion, Makhachev, successfully defended his title against Poirier by submitting him in the fifth round of their fight. Makhachev won the match by demonstrating his expertise in grappling and securing the victory. Even though Poirier, who is renowned for his striking, put out a spirited effort, Makhachev’s stronger ground game eventually proved to be too much for him to overcome. 

According to USA Today, Jolie and her husband were acquainted for the first time while they were both students at Acadian Middle School in Lafayette at the same time. Jolie was born in 1989, the same year as her husband. In 2018, the pair organized a back-to-school drive for children at the school via their Good Fight Foundation. The goal of the drive was to raise sufficient funds to purchase 500 backpacks that were stocked with school materials, as well as laptops that were equipped with the most recent software for instructors.
