After the match, Poirier said "I always saw it as a plus but the Conor McGregor fight was the turning point. I remember I was backstage getting ready to walk out and I saw him and he threw this smile and pointed at me. I don't know why but it really got to me, man. It really messed with my head."[29]

After the loss, Poirier moved to fight in the Lightweight division. Poirier said that it was because weight cuts are distracting him from training.

After the suspension, Poirier fought Eddie Alvarez on May 13, 2017, at UFC 211.[52] Poirier rocked Alvarez in the second round, but was subsequently dropped when Alvarez landed two illegal knees while Poirier was against the fence.
