Dustin Poirier Says UFC Fight vs. Tony Ferguson on Oct. 24 Has Been Called Off

Dustin Poirier told ESPN's Ariel Helwani on Thursday that his scheduled Oct. 24 UFC lightweight fight against Tony Ferguson has been called off because of a financial disagreement.

"UFC and I didn't come to terms," Poirier told Helwani.

"I just need to be compensated if they want this fight," Poirier added.

I'm a prize fighter and the prize needs to be right."

The Poirier-Ferguson matchup was slated as the co-main event for UFC 254 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, alongside a lightweight title unification bout between Khabib and interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje.
