Charles Oliveira vs Michael Chandler: MMA Media Picks | UFC 262

After the biggest win of his career so far at UFC 257, Dustin Poirier has called for himself to be crowned the UFC lightweight champion. Poirier, who knocked out Conor McGregor this past Saturday believes that with Khabib Nurmagomedov retired, he should be crowned the undisputed king of the UFC lightweight division.

With the UFC 257 main event most likely being a title eliminator bout and Khabib Nurmagomedov more than likely retired, it is very clear that Poirier sees himself as the uncrowned champion at 155 pounds.

Do you think that Poirier is the uncrowned king or does he have to beat another top-ranked opponent to become the undisputed world champion?
