    Countless fighters fall into the trap of playing his game particularly his boxing I would maybe try to out point him while being evasive and also attacking his lead leg also Dustin should try tds to set up his strikes.

    I dont see any scenario that he beats Holloway. He is a better striker with high volume, Dustin cant keep Max down or submit him( but i think he will try). Max has a great chin hasnt got knocked down yet but Dustin got knocked out before. It will be a great fight though, cant wait.

    Think Dustin has a power strength advantage. I actually favor him in this fight.

    Dustins boxing defence and cardio are really good. I think he tags Max early and often and stops him

    I think Dustin hits harder so if Holloway doesn’t play it safe he could get dropped, maybe go the dirty boxing way and work Holloway in the clinch for the first 3 rounds? Also everyone is saying that Dustin has better wrestling and ju jitsu but really we just haven’t seen Holloway tested on the ground.

    Teeps and dirty boxing mixed with slams. He has to get Max back peddling for fear of the clinch.

    Dustin is open to leg kicks himself. Justin was killing him with them, not saying Max is an equal leg kicker to Justin but I'm sure he can throw a few and get Dustin thinking about it

    Mike Brown thins Dustin is gonna overwhelm Max with his pressure. So, probably not that.

    Poirier will have to knock him out. It is unlikely, however, lets see how Max's chin holds up against 155ers. I think it will hold up but he will be getting hit with bigger shots at LW. Dustin will definitely hit harder at this weight

    He was younger and inexperienced the first time so of course he can win...

    Dustin chin is questionable.......I don't see how you can beat Max without chin......but a lucky strike is always possible...

    some leg kicks could slow Max down which would let him have an easier time lining up that crisp straight left.

    Dustin's biggest advantage is the fact that now that Max has physically grown into a natural 155er where he still has to cut 20 pounds to make 155 so Max has been used to fighting guys a lot smaller and less denser. This in itself will be a different fight from the eyes of Holloway.Also the continued evolution of Dustin Poirier has turned him into a clear upper tier 155er. I think Vegas has the right guy favored in Max cause of the pound for pound status plus the natural poundage hes put on.However, once again we could be looking at yet another live underdog in diamond in the neighborhood of 2-1.

    I'm leaning towards max and that's no slight on Dustin .... just a bad luck match up with a pound for pounder moving up.That said, I wouldn't be shocked if Dustin won.

    Dustin rocks Max standing, takes him down and submits him befor he can recover.

    I'm not making a prediction but this can easily happen.
