The star dish of UFC 291 did not disappoint and left us with Justin Gaethje as the worst man on earth. Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje
The truth is that during the first round and the little, we could see of the second, we enjoyed this new and improved version of Gaethje, who does not risk so much, but when he hits, he does it as if there was no tomorrow. Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje
The American did not work very well with the low kicks (as in his first match), but this time, he was less exposed, and when he threw, he did it with more sense.
In principle, Poirier carried the weight of the fight, putting the pressure and imposing his boxing. But shortly after starting the second round, Gaethje threw a high kick (it was not the first) that knocked down Poiier’s guard and melted the leads. As in his day, McGregor, the blow touched him behind the ear and disconnected him. Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje
Justin Gaethje proclaimed himself the worst man on earth, and this fight may help him to opt for the belt again. We’ll have to wait and see what happens in the lightweight championship fight between Charles Oliveria and reigning champion Islam Makhachev. Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje
