Dustin Poirier has broken nose, rib, torn ACL after UFC 302 loss to Islam Makhachev | News World

Dustin Poirier has a lengthy recovery ahead of him following his loss to Islam Makhachev at UFC 302, which resulted in multiple injuries.

“Nose is broken bad, rib is broken and my ACL is partially torn,” Poirier wrote on X on Wednesday. “Fight life.”

During Saturday’s match in Newark, N.J., Poirier’s eye swelled between rounds and he complained of what appeared to be a broken nose. Post-round replays showed it likely occurred on an accidental clash of heads.

Poirier, 35, also confirmed the accidental clash broke his nose when a fan asked him about it on X on Wednesday. He also shared a photo of the X-ray of his broken nose and captioned it “Nosey O’Donnell.”

The knee injury appeared to occur in the fourth round as Poirier defended a takedown against the fence. He could be seeing looking over to his coaches in pain during the exchange.
