Dustin Poirier’s wife, Jolie, says he will ‘shock the world’ in fight against McGregor

Who is Dustin Poirier’s wife, Jolie? The UFC lightweight star is preparing to face Conor McGregor this Saturday and fans want to know more about the fighter’s personal life.

Dustin Poirier is only days away from his showdown with the ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor, a fight scheduled to take place on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island.

The pair previously faced off for UFC 178 in 2014, with McGregor walking away victorious after finishing ‘The Diamond’ in just one minute, 46 seconds.

Since the fight, however, Poirier has gone on to prove himself as one of the best fighters in the world, winning the interim lightweight title before falling short against the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov for the undisputed lightweight title.

He currently stands as the number two-ranked lightweight in the world.

Who is Dustin Poirier’s wife?

Dustin Poirier’s wife, Jolie Poirier, was born on 4 March 1989 to parents Teri and Carl LeBlanc. She has two siblings, brother Javen and sister Jandy.

Jolie and Dustin met as teenagers in their home town of Lafayette, Louisiana, and married in 2009. On 20 August 2016, they welcomed their first born daughter, Parker Noelle.

Jolie is often spotted octagon-side during Dustin’s fights and is also heavily involved with her husband’s charity, The Good Fight Foundation, through which the couple are dedicated to giving back to their community.

In 2020 alone, Dustin and his wife provided more than 1,000 warm meals for healthcare workers and much-needed tools to clean up hurricane debris in Lake Charles.

Along with her charity work, Jolie also has a following of more than 2.6k on Instagram, where she can be seen supporting her husband’s fighting career.

In a recent post, in preparation for this weekend’s fight, she wrote: “Another successful training camp in the books for this beautiful man!”

UK fans can watch McGregor vs Poirier 2 live early on Sunday morning (24 January) on BT Sport Box Office HD and across BT’s digital platforms. The prelims (1am to 3am on Sunday) are free to watch on BT Sport 1 HD. 

Jolie predicts her husband will “shock the world”.
