Show Notes -Poirier gets shot at Khabib?

“I’ve paid my dues,” Poirier said in the FS2 post-fight show (via MMAjunkie). “(and) put nothing but hard work in. I’ve been close to the mountaintop”, said Poirier “and (I’ve) been knocked down. (I’ve) shown resilience and fortitude and … done it over and over again to put myself back in the position I’m in, and I’m hitting my stride as a father, a fighter, a husband and a person. I’m ready to go, and gold is next. I smell it. I feel it in the air.” Dana White in attendance at the Gila River Arena in Arizona, spoke with FS2, saying he believes Poirier is  in contention for Khabib’s belt. “Absolutely” White said, referring to Poirier. “He’s definitely in there. (And) he was one of the guys we were thinking about calling last to take the fight (at UFC 223), but we didn’t want to screw up this event.”
