    Gaethje had before the Khabib fight sad that when Poirier won the Interim belt against Max Holloway that was it. So when the time come to fight the actuall champion, Poirier did not have the motivation to defeat Khabib because he already made it.

    Well said Dustin. That punch drunk brawler will never sniff a title again.

    I respect Dustin’s point of view but interim belts are abominations. They shouldn’t exist.

    would love a rematch between these two
    Justin has evolved under Whittman so it would be a fun fight.

    And that interim belt is probably the symbol for all the grind/sweat/blood/work they have gone through to get to the top, and that interim belt means just that.
    An appetizer before the Big Meal(champ belt) one could say :)

    Why the fuck do so many Americans think they're saying some deep motivational shit when all they're doing is chatting absolute nonsense.

    1. It's not 'a piece of the world title'. There's no pieces, there's one whole world championship belt and the man standing across the cage from Dustin and Gaethje was the one who had it.

    2. How the fuck would Justin's life have changed in the last few months if he didn't push the interim belt away?

    3. 'I was in a place of gratitude'. Hahaha. Shut up.

    He has a point. There isn't just "the champ" and garbage. Being there is an achievment. Similar belt for nr1 contender is a gimmick. At least do Olympics and give them worse metal or smth.

    There's no wrong way to look at it. They both lose to khabib regardless how he treated the belt.

    Besides, I saw him taking pictures with his family holding the belt. So its not like he had zero appreciation for it. He didn't throw it in storage when he got home lol.

    Belts themselves are goofy tho.

    the overall point he’s making is enjoy the journey not the destination

    Justin comes across like he’s trying to impress his former high school football coaches or something. He tries too hard. Like jj watt or someone like this

    Dustin is low key one of the realest combatants in MMA history. He's everything you could possibly appreciate in a fighter
