    I really don't think he's that talented, and he's chin is not even that solid but man... hard work and being tough can really pay back.
    With that being said.. he's not beating Khabib anytime soon, he could outbox Ferguson though...

    Hes always been really talented. You should watch more of his early fights at 145. Fights with korean zombie were insane. He made huge improvements after moving up to 155 but his chin isn't the best, boxing is though.

    I think the fight against khabib is interesting as well, Poirier ain't no Mcgregor on the ground

    It takes talent and a chin to win the kind of fights he has as of late though.

    Pretty damn impressive.


    Khabib murders him though. Might be a TKO via GnP.

    His striking was wonderful tonight. Max is tough and many others have fallen to Dustin's strikes. His cardio was on point for the pace and output, especially since he was throwing mostly power shots the entire fight. How are you not impressed?

    And McGregor is no white belt on the ground either. You really think Poirier is that much better to make a difference by round 4?

    Dustin screaming "I'm the champ!" and "Where's my belt!" was so cringey. Neither him or Isreal are actual champs

    Don't think he won that fight and don't think he lasts long against Khabib

    Dustin is a good guy, seems like a great husband, father, family man - he deserves this moment. The guy is raising money to build a playground for christ's sake, you can't hate on a guy like that. Respect to Poirier.

    I get it, but damn. Intern titles should be given on rare occasion when the real champ can't fight for a long stretch of time. Aren't Robert and Khabib only missing a couple of months?

    Yes, I'm sure you know what it takes to be a champ

    Well, I don't want to be "2nd place champ" in anything. So I guess it's a moot point

    I kind of think she just filled out. Unless she got hip implants too.

    'Pends, if Khabib sticks to his whole not fighting till his teammates suspensions are up bullshit then he'll have sat out for over a year considering he beat Conor in October last year. The Reaper's supposed to be back by July/August so that was perhaps premature, but since it hypes up an Aussie Kiwi fight, fuck it I'm all for it.

    Dustin’s boxing is great, but his defense is very overrated. Besides when he occasionally gets sloppy he has damn good punch defense. Most strikes Max threw, especially early were completely blocked.

    Sure doesn't sound like you are happy, sounds like you are criticizing him while he's on his high. That's deplorable lol.
