Following on from the biggest win of his career to date over Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier has called to be crowned the UFC lightweight champion — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Dustin Poirier sees himself as the uncrowned king of the lightweight division
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.

Im already the champ https://t.co/88P6nQtewW— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) January 26, 2021
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?
