"Thank you guys for the support, it means a lot to me. If I choose to fight again, I'll be back strong. If not, I'll see what God has in store for me. Thank you," he said.

Poirier has amassed a career record of 25-6 and finally earned his shot to become the undisputed division champion. The 30-year-old will likely take some time before determining his next move after losing his interim title.
