Nate Diaz & Dustin Poirier announce 165lbs title fight, UFC deny the news

UFC 230 takes place Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden and is still without a main event. Nate Diaz vs Dustin Poirier is already scheduled for the main card at 155lbs but the two took to social media to announce their fight as the new main event.

The most interesting stand out from these announcements is that they would be fighting for the first 165lbs title. This weight division is long overdue to bridge the gap between the Lightweight and Welterweight divisions. However the UFC have denied this news and say they are working an interim title fight to headline the event instead.

Several fighters gave their reactions to the announcement.

The UFC 230 main event is still to be announced, stay tuned for more updates.
