Dustin ‘The Diamond’ Poirier prepares for the biggest fight of his career as he takes on highly regarded and fan favourite Nate Diaz in the co-main event of UFC 230 on November 3.

Poirier is coming of three consecutive finishes of former world champions namely Anthony Pettis, Justin Gaethje and Eddie Alvarez. In an ideal world, Poirier deserves a title shot but current lightweight title picture does not allow him to do so as of now. However his success is much credited to his move up to lightweight from featherweight where he was already successful with a 8-3 record.

Poirier has certainly reaped the benefits of no longer starving and dehydating his body as the American Top Team prospect has gone 8-1 ever since moving upto lightweight. He urges every fighter to at least consider moving up a weight class.

“Yeah, I’d recommend that to pretty much everybody,” Dustin Poirier told Nick Dwyer of Everlast.com in a recent interview. “You’re just happier with training camp, you know? You can enjoy it more, you enjoy fight week more, it’s better for your body, your mind. It’s just better for everything. There’s a point when you do this long enough where you’re going to hate the process of starving yourself and being low on calories and nutrients all through camp and then having to sacrifice two or three months of hardcore dieting and then show up and still have 20 pounds to go, it just makes it not fun.”
