Now that one of the biggest – if not the biggest – wins of Dustin Poirier’s career is in the books, you can own all the gear that went along with it.
MMAjunkie recently reported on Poirier’s decision to auction off his fight kit from UFC Fight Night 120, as well as his plans to auction off his gear after all his future fights to raise money for important causes close to him. He first auctioned off his gear following UFC 211 in May and raised $5,100 for the Second Harvest Food Bank in his home city of Lafayette, La., which translated to 3,000 meals for needy families.
This past Saturday, Poirier (22-5 MMA, 14-4 UFC) took out former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis (20-7 MMA, 7-6 UFC) with a third-round TKO in a “Fight of the Night” winner at UFC Fight Night 120, which took place at Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va.
And now, Poirier has his fight kit on eBay to raise money for the family of Lafayette Police Cpl. Michael Middlebrook, who was killed in the line of duty in October.
The bidding opened at $3,000, and there already is a bid on it. Bidding ends Thursday.
The auction includes: Poirier’s Reebok shorts, warm-up pants, shirt, hat, hand wraps and gloves – all worn to the cage or in the cage.
Check out the video above to hear from Poirier about the auction and his plans for future auctions. Below, don’t miss the highlights of his big win over Pettis.
