“I know I can compete with the best of these guys, but if I do fight again, what am I fight for? Just to fight? I’ve done that 50 times. I don’t know. I’ve got a little girl I love. I’ve got to see. I think this could be it, honestly,” Dustin Poirier said.

“I’m not 100% sure, but if this is my last fight, I want to dedicate this journey to the people who have made me the man I am, and that’s the women in my life. To my grandmother, I miss you every day and I know I’m still protected by your prayers. To my mother, we’ve had a crazy life. I love you, thanks for always having my back. And to my wife, I love you so much. I wouldn’t be standing right here without you. I don’t know if I’d be breathing, honestly, if it wasn’t for you”

“And to Parker, daddy’s fine. I love you so much. I’m so proud of you. We’re alright, baby. Always chase your dreams. It’s a beautiful thing.”
