It appears now that the UFC and Poirier have both been satisfied, as Poirier has taken to Twitter to hint at a return to action:
I'm gonna go out there and earn it in blood.— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) October 7, 2020
Paid In Full— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) October 7, 2020
It's all about perseverance— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) November 12, 2016
Poirier, who is reportedly fighting Conor McGregor in a charity fight on December 12, has not competed since defeating Dan Hooker by unanimous decision in a five-round war in June. Although Poirier does hint at a return to action, no opponent or date have been revealed by the fighter at this time.
