On Saturday, UFC lightweight standout Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier announced his promotion to black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Poirier was promoted by TUF 7 alum Tim Credeur, whom he trains with at the Gladiators Academy in Lafayette, Louisiana. The 28-year-old Poirier last fought in November when he won against Anthony Pettis via third-round TKO in their headliner event in Norfolk, Virginia. He is currently campaigning for a rematch against Eddie Alvarez.
