UFC Star Dustin Poirier Denies Nate Diaz Showdown at UFC 300

Speculation about a potential matchup between Dustin Poirier and Nate Diaz at UFC 300 has been dismissed by Poirier himself, as the UFC star remains focused on his return to the Octagon.

Dustin Poirier has established himself as a prominent figure in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, with a career marked by remarkable longevity and memorable fights, including his trilogy with Conor McGregor. Despite facing setbacks, Poirier remains determined and is gearing up for a comeback following his knockout loss to Justin Gaethje last year.

While Poirier has a few potential opponents in mind for his return, his primary goal is to be part of the historic UFC 300 event scheduled for April 13 in Las Vegas, which is expected to draw widespread attention from fans and fighters alike.

Contrary to rumors, Poirier has clarified that Nate Diaz will not be his opponent for UFC 300. The two fighters were initially set to face off at UFC 230 over five years ago, but the matchup never materialized. Despite Diaz's outspoken nature and previous comments about Poirier, the anticipated showdown between them has yet to materialize, and Poirier seems uninterested in pursuing it further at this time.
