Poirier is 3 and 0 since moving back up to lightweight, winning against Carlos Diego Ferreira, Yancy Medeiros, and Joe Duffy in January.

Green lost his last fight by decision in November 2014 against Edson Barbosa. Before that he was on a 8 fight win streak; Green trains at Pinnacle MMA in California.
Green has trained with the Diaz brothers in the past, he said: "It was amazing. I got to stay at Nate's house the whole time. He really treated me like a little brother. I'm just very appreciative. I don't have words for it."
The UFC 199 card is headlined by Rockhold vs Weidman 2. And also has Cruz vs Faber 3.
