UFC 291 is set to take place this Saturday in Salt Lake City, featuring a highly anticipated main event between lightweight elites Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje. The two fighters will be competing for the ceremonial BMF title, but more importantly, they will be vying for a shot at the legitimate belt.
A Chance for Redemption
Both Poirier and Gaethje have had their fair share of setbacks in the lightweight division . Poirier suffered a TKO loss to Gaethje back in 2017, while Gaethje himself was choked out by Khabib Nurmagomedov in their unification fight at UFC 254. Now, these two warriors have the opportunity to redeem themselves and prove their worth.
The Road to the Title
While Charles Oliveira has already secured a fight against reigning champion Islam Makhachev in October, the winner of the Poirier vs Gaethje rematch is expected to be next in line for a shot at the title. Gaethje, in particular, believes that if he emerges victorious, his path to the championship will be easier than his previous encounter with Khabib.
A Clash of Styles
Poirier and Gaethje are known for their aggressive fighting styles, making this rematch a clash of titans. Poirier’s technical striking and submission skills will be put to the test against Gaethje’s relentless pressure and knockout power. Fans can expect an all-out war inside the Octagon.
The outcome of this rematch will have significant implications for the lightweight division . If Poirier avenges his previous loss and emerges victorious, he will solidify his position as a top contender. On the other hand, a win for Gaethje will not only earn him the BMF title but also put him one step closer to a shot at the championship.
Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje is a rematch that fight fans have been eagerly anticipating. With both fighters hungry for redemption and a chance at the title, this main event promises to deliver fireworks. Don’t miss out on the action this Saturday at UFC 291!
