He's also open to fighting Dennis Siver...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Dustin Poirier (15-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) said that he would like a rematch with Cub Swanson (20-5 MMA, 5-1 UFC). The two last fought in February after Poirier replaced Dennis Siver with four weeks notice. He lost by decision.
On who he wants to fight: "I want a rematch with Cub Swanson. I feel like I deserve to be 100 percent and fight him."
On their last fight: "I took the fight on short notice, cut 30 pounds that week, flew to London and never felt the feeling I had the night of the fight ever before in my life. It was just a bad feeling, I felt like I shouldn't have been going out there and fighting."
On a fight with Dennis Siver: "I think Dennis Siver would be an interesting fight. He's a top guy coming off a win on the same night, so he's probably looking to fight the same timeframe as me, so that's interesting."
