Five Dustin Poirier Fights To Watch Before UFC 302

When Poirier vs Benoît Saint Denis was announced, many fight fans were confused why Poirier was fighting so far back in the rankings, but like the UFC matchmakers tend to do, they put together a banger fight that delivered a signature performance from Poirier.

Poirier stood in the fire with Saint Denis and landed massive power strikes that dropped the rising French star. He also attempted multiple guillotine chokes that had the entire arena screaming – especially his corner – before he put together a highlight reel sequence that shut the lights out on Saint Denis. The win propelled Poirier to a title shot at UFC 302 against Islam Makhachev.
