Lightweight fan favorite Dustin Poirier returns to action in March.

At UFC 299, on March 9, he will take on rising star Benoit Saint-Denis in a five round co-main event. The fight was announced by the promotion.

No. 3 ranked lightweight Poirier looks to bounce back from a tough knockout loss to Justin Gaethje in their “BMF” title fight this past August.

Former French special forces soldier Saint-Denis will look to extend his impressive five-fight stoppage winning streak in the promotion. The No. 12 ranked fighter comes from a first-round head kick KO against Matt Frevola in November.
