Hours separate Dustin Poirier from the biggest fight of his professional life as he attempts to claim UFC lightweight superiority.

On Saturday night, inside a stadium built specifically to host the event, Poirier will attempt to realise a lifelong ambition by unifying the two titles currently held in the 155-pound fold — but quite the challenge awaits in the form of the Russian grappler.
