Dustin Poirier revealed that he is in a bit of a weird spot when it comes to his next fight with no official names or dates being announced.

The former Interim UFC champion was in Las Vegas attending the 15th Annual World MMA Awards when he stopped to speak to reporters. An interviewer from MMA Junkie asked Dustin Poirier about his matchmaking situation, and Poirier revealed that he was in a "weird spot:"

"Yeah I'm in a weird spot. It's like my first time in this position in my whole career. You know, still at the top, but kind of like waiting for something big to happen. I've always just fought, fought, fought to try to climb and claw my way to the top, to get big fights, and I feel like now I'm here. And also I'm running businesses outside of fighting."

Dustin Poirier is still looking for his next fight but has not had any promising offers come his way. When asked about potentially fighting on the UFC 300 card, he said he would be honored to fight on such a historic card and would want that to happen.
