    Show some respect - Jim is still a good fighter.

    That being said, I expect Dustin to win.

    Poirier. Miller is sloppy in the stand up and I think Poirier has the TDD to keep it on the feet. Rooting for Miller though.

    Could go either way, both bring the pressure. Miller's better on the ground and has a better chin, while Poirier's faster on the feet. Jim's tough to put away though so he might take this, but I'm going with DP because of speed & footwork.

    I think the cage gets its second win by toe hold.

    Jim Miller is a great fighter. He's had a lot of great moments. But he is on the decline of his career. Poirier has a lot more momentum. It's a gimme fight for Poirier to get back in the win column. I would like to be proven wrong though.

    Damn, don't really want either guy to lose.

    Awesome matchup though, heart says Miller, head says Dustin.

    I don't think Poirier is a top level guy but he's good. Should be able to squeak out a win. I wonder if this gets the main fight on Fight Pass or on FS1.
