    Dustin Poirier and Michael Chiesa both tweet almost identically, indicating bouts for UFC 223 in Brooklyn.

    This doesn't necessarily mean they're fighting eachother but expect both to be a part of the Brooklyn card in April.

    Hopefully we get Poirier vs Taisumov, better fight than the rumors for both guys. Then have Chiesa vs Dunham, much better

    UFC 223, is looking amazing tbh.

    Felder/Iaquinta
    Poirier/Chiesa
    Taisumov first fight in the US.

    POSSIBLE Ferg/Khabib headline. {<goku}

    Not a good match up for Chiesa if true.

    Iaquinta vs Felder

    Kowalkiewicz vs Herrig

    Taisumov vs Dunham

    Potential Zabit Fight

    Potential Dustin Poirier vs Michael Chiesa fight

    Possibly Khabib vs Ferguson for the undisputed Lightweight title.

    Just made a thread where Dustin Poirier tweeted virtually the same thing. Maybe they're fighting eachother. UFC 223 is shaping up to be an awesome card if the rumors all pan out.

    Makes up for a shitty start to the year with UFC 220 and 221.

    Very true.

    I think everybody that matters is ducking Taisumov, including Pettis and Poirier.

    Are we sure Eddie didn't man up to finish their fight?

    step backwards for dustin but with that win streak he can argue to be the next #1 contender after this conor vs tony/khabib shit is settled

    or maybe conor doesnt fight tony or khabib and they can defend vs dustin

    the card could be a showcase of the lightweight division:

    Conor/Tony
    Khabib/Eddie
    Lee/Barboza
    Poirier/Chiesa
    Taisumov/Dunham
    Iaquinta/Felder

    Rumor has it Yamasaki will be the appointed ref and Chiesa is fine with it, because Mario has finally ditched the heart signs in favor of the love horns, which are much manlier.

    Just make it a LW bonanza. Get anyone and everyone in the top 50 who could fight on it, would be sick.
