Dustin Poirier Height ~ How Tall is He Really?

"You can go out and get anything you want if you work hard enough for it and believe in yourself."

"Focus on performance. Outcome is going to happen. No stress about that. Focus on performance." 

~ Dustin Poirier

Mixed martial artist Dustin Poirier is one of the slickest strikers of UFC. He seemed to have gotten just better and better with time like a fine wine. Where height is concerned, UFC lists him at 5'9" which strangely seems very accurate (most often UFC listings aren't). 

Dustin looks around the same height as Khabib Nurmagomedov (or sometimes just a hair shorter) and looks slightly taller than Conor McGregor. Now Khabib and Conor are around 5'9" to 5'8.5" respectively in real life. And it is more than possible that Dustin is simply 5'9" barefoot. Where weight is concerned, Dustin's offseason weight is a hefty 190 lb (86 kg).

The real height of Dustin Poirier is 

5'9" or 175 cm

Data painstakingly extracted more or less from Wikipedia and some other sources. Expect up to half an inch of discrepancy from real life. All heights are supposed to belong to relatively young people of the urban areas, so they may come out slightly over the real average height.
