“When they called me – because we were talking about doing this fight with Justin potentially being the opponent, those butterflies, that anxiety hit me right away,” Poirier said during the UFC 291 media day. “Like ‘We have to do this. This is the one.’ It was five years ago I beat him. He’s done great things, I’ve done great things and we were just on a collision course to do it again. No. 2, No. 3 – No. 1 is fighting the champ. It just makes sense in the division as well.”
