Happy Father’s Day to the dads, the step-dads, the soon-to-be dads, and those who chose to play the role of dad. We appreciate you!

We talked with the UFC’s finest, Dustin Poirier, about his plans for Father’s Day and what fatherhood means to him.

How are you planning on celebrating Father’s Day?
The plan, as of now, is to take my family to a nice lunch! Then unwinding at home by watching a movie.

How does being a father compare to what you thought it was going to be like?
Honestly? I didn’t know what to expect. But what I can say is, it is the best thing I have ever done in my life!

What does fatherhood symbolize to you?
It’s like laying groundwork and foundation, but in this sense, it’s the base for who a person will grow up to be.

What personality attributes do you see of yourself in your daughter, Parker?
Parker is very athletic! And her determination is so strong — like mine, no doubt!

What do you want for Parker as she grows up?
I want Parker to chase her dreams! I want her to feel free to be who she wants to be, not what the world tells her to be. To ALWAYS be her own, authentic self.
