While competing at 155 lbs, Poirier's broad frame makes him appear larger than many opponents. The American has often revealed that he carries significantly more weight when not in fight camp.

Poirier's walk-around weight fluctuates, but it generally falls between 175-180 lbs. This is significantly higher than his fighting weight.

This disclosure came after a fan expressed skepticism online regarding Poirier's weight during his training camp for UFC 299. The Louisiana native responded by sharing a video on social media, stepping on a scale to showcase his weight at 176 lbs.

Dustin Poirier vows knockout for Islam Makhachev at UFC 302

UFC lightweight title hopeful Dustin Poirier fired back at Islam Makhachev's recent dismissive comments about his championship aspirations. 'The Diamond' is aiming for his third shot at lightweight gold at this weekend's UFC 302. Makhachev, a protégé of former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, downplayed Poirier's chances.

However, appearing on Media Day, Poirier responded with a confident prediction:

"I can definitely win this fight. If I touch his chin, he'll go down. And he'll find that out on Saturday. Maybe that's something he doesn't need to believe. Maybe he needs to be positive and be confident walking into this - which he should be. But if you don't think I have a chance to win, you're lying to yourself."
