Dustin Poirier is one of the top names and draws in all of mixed martial arts. Not only is he one of the sport's best, but he is also one of the sport's most likable personalities. Whether you see him in the Octagon, or promoting his charity The Good Fight Foundation, he's always doing something the fans can appreciate. Poirier's legacy is stellar both inside and out of the cage no matter if we get to see him grace the Octagon again, or not.

Whether he is conducting back-to-school drives for his charity, or cutting promos for his hot sauce company, Poirier can still compete with the best of them at 155 pounds. Currently ranked No. 4 in the UFC, Poirier is still at the top of the sport despite saying he is not sure if we will continue to compete following his submission loss to the champion Islam Makhachev in June.

Dustin Poirier next fight

According to Poirier, it seems he wants to fight at least one more time before calling it quits. The question is, against who? It would need to be a big enough name for Poirier to have the urge to step back in there. Fighting another up-and-comer like Benoit Saint-Denis who he beat at UFC 299 which earned him a title shot to face Makhachev at UFC 301 does not seem like another likely option. The likes of a trilogy match against Justin Gaethje or Max Holloway seem like they could be formidable opponents, but we will have to wait and see.
