Why? Justify this fight being made. I know theirs the whole issue of scheduling but why schedule a fight that is going to do nothing? Surely if they sat out a few more weeks there'd be a better opponent?

No disrespect to Poirier since this is likely not a difficult fight for him if he does a full camp and shows up with his head on, but this fight does nothing but make him money.

It's like when Mendes fought McKenzie right after Aldo, that was enough of a step down, THEN he fought Yaotzin Meza. wtf?!?

the UFC puts on a lot of events and sometimes guys are going to get fights that are not exactly the best fight for them. maybe they had always planned on him being on the card and the opponent they wanted was not available.

also maybe Dustin was told it was this fight or he could wait a couple months for a top ten guy.....and seeing how he hadn't fought in 2014, he wanted to fight and make some cash.

whatever the reason, this is not the worst fight ever.

Honestly Poirier just destroyed the guy who won Akira's season of TUF and was on a better streak. Akira has basically done nothing since TUF.

Step down for Dustin.
All this talk.......

Dustin's awesome, and I'm not surprised that he's a heavy favorite here.......but you know that Akira is reading this kind of shit, and there is no more potent fuel to put in any athlete's tank than telling him that he can't.

It's MMA......shit happens. I hope Poirier is taking Corassani more seriously than the rest of us are.

yes, let's have all fighters sit home and do nothing rather than having them fight someone who doesn't match the wikipedia record expectations of Sherdoggers.

Don't know why this is on the main card while Stout/Noons is on the prelims.
