Poirier vs. Gaethje 2: A Clash of Lightweight Titans

Don’t miss the highly anticipated rematch between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje at UFC 291. Get all the details about the event, including fight card, date, and live stream information.

Two of the best in the business meet up Saturday night in Utah, both looking to put themselves in line for a future title shot, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship puts together another exciting pay-per-view on Saturday night.

The main event will feature the second time Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier and Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje will meet in the octagon, both looking to get close to the Lightweight championship, also fighting for the vacant “BMF” title.

This will be Poirier’s first fight since forcing Michael Chandler to tap out at UFC 281. The former interim champion has won four of his last fights, with a loss via submission to Charles Oliveira for the undisputed title at UFC 269 occurring during that span. Poirier is the second-ranked Lightweight in the UFC, with a 29-7-1 career record, 14 wins by knockout. He is tied for the most wins by knockout in the Lightweight division with eight.

Gaethje is the No. 3 fighter in the division, and is hoping to build off his win over Rafael Fiziev at UFC 286. Part of his 24-4 record, the three-time “Fight of the Year” winner has 19 wins by knockout.

The other notable fight on the card will also feature a pair of top-three combatants squaring off with the hopes of a title shot, as Jan Blachowicz takes on Alex Pereira in a Light Heavyweight clash. Pereira is coming off his first-ever loss in the UFC, where he lost to Israel Adesanya.
