Josh Thomson: I Trained with Dustin Poirier When He Fought at 145, He Weighed 185

Former Strikeforce lightweight champion and UFC lightweight Josh Thomson was joined by Big John McCarthy on Sammy and The Punk podcast and revealed some stories from their days training.

Thomson spoke about training with Mark Henry's New Jersey-based camp with Frankie Edgar, while joined by a young Dustin Poirier.

When asking Poirier about what division he fights in, it completely caught Thomson by surprise seeing the visible difference in size between the two fighters.
