UFC star Dustin Poirier could be on his way to the WWE. The former UFC Interim Lightweight champion noted the same on Twitter and said that he is ‘On his way’ to the professional wrestling promotion.
“A fan's questions: When will you join WWE?” a fan asked Dustin on Twitter recently.
To this, Poirier replied.
“On my way”
Poirier has not fought in the UFC since his loss to Charles Oliveira back in December 2021. Prior to this, he was on a three-fight winning streak with two wins over former UFC double champion Conor McGregor and Dan Hooker.
He currently holds a professional MMA record of 28-7 to his name and has only lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Charles Oliveira since 2017.
A long list of UFC stars has transitioned successfully to professional wrestling with the most notable name being Ronda Rousey. The former UFC Bantamweight champion has been on a notable run in WWE since signing with the promotion.
Apart from Ronda Rousey, former UFC Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, Matt Riddle, Shayna Baszler among others have also transitioned successfully from MMA to Professional Wrestling with the latest addition to the list being Paige Van Zant.
