Dustin Poirier Unsure Of Future Title Shot Chances Going Into UFC 281: "Nothing Is Ever Clear In This Sport"

Former interim UFC lightweight champion, Dustin Poirier, is unsure if a victory over Michael Chandler puts him in line for another title shot at 155 pounds.

Poirier spoke with reporters at the media day for this Saturday night's UFC 281 pay-per-view event in New York City ahead of his matchup with Chandler and explained while he doesn't know where a win this weekend puts him in the promotion's lightweight title picture, the 33-year-old Lafayette, Louisiana native does admit there are new opportunities for him now with a new champion in Islam Makhachev atop the division
