Dustin Poirier Injured, Out of Co-Main Event Against Nate Diaz at UFC 230
Dustin Poirier has suffered an injury in training that has forced him out of his co-main event bout against Nate Diaz at UFC 230 on Nov. 3.
Sources close to the situation confirmed the news on Tuesday following an initial report from ESPN.
It’s been a wild day for the UFC 230 fight card after a new main event was just announced between heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and No. 2 ranked contender Derrick Lewis.
Now just hours later, UFC 230 loses a marquee co-main event with Poirier vs. Diaz being scrapped less than a month before the card takes place.
The UFC hasn’t made any official announcement regarding the change to the card and there’s no word if Diaz would even consider taking on a short notice replacement now that Poirier is out.
What is certain is Poirier will no longer fight at UFC 230 and the Nov. 3 card braces for any further changes with the days dwindling down until the show takes place.
