Diaz v Poirier - 165lb Title

I'm just wondering of its another promo stunt by these 2 to tweet this similar to when they said they wouldn't fight at the beginning! Surely if this is true 170 has to move as well now? No real objection to have them fighting for it if true, just figured it was weird having them move up and away from 155 considering this was/still could be the #1 contender fight.

Edit - Dana has now come out denying this.. Conclusion - PR, easiest way to a title..

 Diaz and porrier said it on Twitter then Dana instantly denies it so it must be true that it's happening.  We all know how much Dana lies. Often he'll say no one day then it's happening the next day. 

Dana wants to save the 165 belt for someone special in his life - Conor. More specifically Conor vs Nate. They will have fought in 3 different weight classes

They’ve only fought at 170, even though the second fight probably should have been at 155. 

Not sure why Dana is against a 165lb div. It makes all the sense in the world. Move welterweight to 175.

Why would they have 165 when they have 170?  are they going to change all the divisions?

You only have to change 1 division. Welterweight moves from 170 to 175.

Out of all the divisions they’ve added in recent years, this is the one that actually makes sense. There’s a ton of fighters to fill a 165 pound division.

But why? WW is already thin as hell. If Woodley beats Colby there is no one left. If half of those fighters go to 165 and other half to 175, it’s extremly weak then. MW is weak too. Whitaker has fought one person in the last 1.5 years
