Dustin Poirier "The fight will end with my hand raised"

Dustin Poirier is keen to finish Anthony Pettis in the main event of Fight Night Norfolk on FS1. Defeating Pettis led to title shots for both Eddie Alvarez and Max Holloway, and Poirier is hopeful for the same outcome if he has success in The Octagon this Saturday.

Pettis is equally driven, looking to revive his 'Showtime' heyday and return to the top of the lightweight division. For his part, Poirier isn't concerned, and promises a win "by any means necessary."
