Dustin Poirier is certainly a top contender in the UFC lightweight division and he has found himself in poor health of late. He is coming off of his UFC 281 win over Michael Chandler. Poirier has been circling the UFC lightweight division top five for a while now. He put himself in a great position with his last win in New York City but now this infection could derail his momentum.
