Dustin Poirier charity grappling match is off

The charity grappling match between jiu-jitsu sensation Garry Tonon and former interim UFC champ Dustin Poirier will not take place as expected.

Tonon sustained a cut above his right eye during training and as a result was forced to withdraw from his scheduled grappling bout with Poirier, which was meant to take place Feb. 21 in Miami.

As a result of this, both men are returning to their MMA plans.

Tonon (5-0) intends to get back to competition with his home of ONE Championship in April, though he does not have an opponent announced. Poirier (25-6), meanwhile, is also hoping to get back to work in April with a key matchup in the UFC lightweight or welterweight divisions.
