The fighter, in an attempt to help bolster the business for a restaurant known as Broaddus Burger, will pay the bill for everybody who eats there on fight night.

“We reached to a few locally-owned restaurants and we wanted to give them a small bump in business,” Poirier told MMA Junkie. “So from the beginning of the fights on Saturday to the end of the fights, from 5 p.m. to close, we’re encouraging people to come in and we’re going to cover their food bill. We’re going to cover the tabs for everyone watching the fights. I think it’s good to have everyone come together and talk over a common ground of fighting. With everything that’s going on with this separation of people to have something to cheer for locally and bring the community together. I thought that was good idea.”

UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Hooker takes place on Saturday, June 27 from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada with Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on ESPN.
