Getty Dustin Poirier poses during a ceremonial weigh in for UFC 264 at T-Mobile Arena on July 09, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

No. 1-ranked UFC lightweight Dustin Poirier has a chance to make a dream come true next month, and if he does, he may elect to move up in weight.

“The Diamond” is scheduled to fight 155-pound champion Charles Oliveira in the main event of UFC 269 on December 11, 2021.

Poirier is riding the momentum of two big TKO wins over Conor McGregor in which he earned earlier this year.

He has held interim gold before, but never a UFC undisputed title.

And if Poirier gets his hand raised over the Brazilian, he could potentially move to 170 pounds. That’s what he told MMA Junkie’s Danny Segura recently.

Poirier has been on record several times stating that he typically walks around between 180 to 190 pounds, far above the 156-pound lightweight limit. And since it’s a title fight, Poirier will have to weigh in at the championship weight of 155 pounds.

At 32 years old, the only place Poirier is going is possibly up a division.

“I’m not retiring,” Poirier said via Sportskeeda.com. “I’m 32, man. I feel good. You see the way I’m moving out here today. I feel good. I’m having fun. If anything, I’ll go up. I’ll probably go to 170; if anything. But no, honestly, my goal isn’t to try to have the most successful title defenses. I don’t know. We’ll see. One day at a time. I can’t look; none of that is even a reality until December 11th happens, and I get my hand raised. I have to do that first before we can even go into these conversations because I don’t know what’s next. I live my life one day at a time, man; a quarter-mile at a time.”

Catch or no catch? Browns TE David Njokus touchdown vs. Ravens stirs debate

It’s a question as old as football itself: catch or no catch?

Late in the third quarter of Sunday night’s game in Baltimore, Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku caught a 20-yard touchdown pass to cut the Ravens’ lead to 13-10. After Njoku slid to the ground to cradle the ball before crossing the goal line, the official at the near pylon signaled touchdown on the field.

Upon further review, the officials ruled that Njoku made the catch, but it appeared as if the ball might have hit the ground.

The official NFL Officiating Twitter account agreed with the officials’ decision, ruling that “there was no clear and obvious visual evidence to overturn the call on the field.” On the “Sunday Night Football” broadcast, rules analyst Terry McAulay also agreed with the decision to uphold the catch.

That didn’t stop the debate online, with some fans even sharing close-ups of the moment in which the ball might have made contact with the M&T Bank Stadium turf.
