ABU DHABI – Dustin Poirier spent his 32nd birthday doing media runs, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t celebrate at least a little bit.
During my interview with him for UFC Arabia, Poirier was surprised with a birthday cake mid-chat, as his wife and those around sang for him.
Unfortunately for Poirier, all he could do is smell the cake and look at it since he’s in the middle of his weight cut for his highly anticipated rematch with Conor McGregor on Saturday at UFC 257.
Take a look at the clip in the video below:
