Dustin Poirier has revealed what he sets out to prove by beating Michael Chandler at UFC 281 this weekend.
On Saturday night at Madison Square Garden, Dustin Poirier and Michael Chandler will collide. It’s a clas
h that, in many ways, has been building for a few years now.
These two are elite level lightweights and at the world’s most famous arena, they’ll get the chance to prove it.
Chandler is coming off the back of a KO win over Tony Ferguson whereas Poirier was beaten by Charles Oliveira last December.
“This is a huge fight in my career. First of all, I’ve never lost two fights in a row in my whole career since an amateur, I’ve never lost two fights in a row,” Poirier said.
“I want to prove to myself that I learn from mistakes, I get back to the grind, pick myself back up, and not only to myself, I want to prove to my family and for the fans, to my daughter that you can fall down and get back up and succeed. So, this fight for me personally, it’s very important for me to get a victory over another former world champion and add his name to my résumé and legacy.”
He still doesn’t have a clean win over Conor. Two flukes don’t count. That’s what Dustin should be focused on.
Dustin is referring to this moment. He still hasn’t recovered from it. Colby called him a cuck and said his son was actually Conor’s son. So he needs to
His family he’s still a man lol
Chandler will connect, very interesting how Dustin will react
Huge Poirier fan, but Chandler is a beast. I don’t think Dustin can keep up with the pace and the pressure that Chandler will bring.
I don’t expect much defence in this one. Should be entertaining
Chandler will probably get pieced up if he can’t get it done quick.
He doesn’t have the cardio or boxing to go with Dustin.
Maybe he tries to use his wrestling to steal a round or two.
They’re the same fight, he beat that leg so bad in the 2nd fight that it broke in their 3rd.
There is no way in hell Dustin loses this fight. First round KO put your money on it now.
Never get sick of seeing these
Herb Dean shoulda let him get a few more strikes in
We got a 30 year old red head virgin @Vegito_Blue talking about other people not being a man…
Oh wait this is 3 rounds? Bullshit. Fuck WMMA.
What on earth gives you this idea? It’s a 3 round fight, he took bombs from Justin Gaethje and kept coming to the final bell.
Not a fan of his in the least but I see Poirier winning this by either decision or late rounds stoppage.
