Alvarez returns to face Poirier at UFC 211

Two of the UFC's premier lightweights will square off in Dallas on May 13, as former world champion Eddie Alvarez returns to battle No. 10-ranked Dustin Poirier in a UFC 211 bout at American Airlines Center.

In the UFC 211 main event, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defends his crown against Junior Dos Santos, and in the co-main event, Joanna Jedrzejczyk defends her strawweight title against Jessica Andrade.

Back in action for the first time since his UFC 205 bout with Conor McGregor, Philadelphia's Alvarez hopes a win over Poirier will get him to the front of the line as he pursues a second title. But Louisiana's Poirier has momentum on his side after a big Fight of the Night win over Jim Miller in February.
