    Not a porier hater but....he is not that good. The following fighters would beat him.

    Khabib, Tony, Lee, Barbosa, Gacje.

    He is wasting a Khabib fight. We all know he will get smoked, he looked half dead vs max

    You do realize he beat Gaethje though right, or is Gacje some new up coming fighter? Not to mention that Kevin Lee's going up to 170.

    Porier is a very exciting fighter, but the title fight should be Tony vs Khabib.

    In his last 4 fights he submitted Showtime Pettis with a body triangle, he knocked Justin Gaetchje the fuck out, he knocked Eddie Alvarez out, and then he beat Max Holloway who was on a 13 fight win streak and the champ of 145.

    That's how.

    Khabib - everybody gets beat by Khabib, wrestling too strong

    Tony - I'm not too confident about Tony in this match-up. Poiriers strikes are becoming more accurate, defense getting better, pop in his punches getting stronger. Tony has been dropped by pretty much anyone he's faced the last couple of years. I could see Poirier ending this rather quickly.

    Lee - glass jaw Lee gets sent to the shadow realm in the first or second round

    Barboza - pretty great fight honestly

    Gaethje - ...........................

    Why not. Poirer is well rounded. If he can stay composed who knows what could happen. Dp has been actively fighting the best dudes around for a while.

    Khabib could run through him but at +300 or whatever dp would be I'd throw him in my play.

    I think Khabib and Tony beat him but I'd favor him over Edson, Lee and he already beat Gaethje..

    Yeah he's not an ideal challenger, will get dominated by Khabib and would lose to Tony and Conor, so he's not even the best challenger regardless of the Khabib match-up. But Max didn't get it done, isn't big enough for LW, so his limits were shown as well. Just based on the Aldo fights and how he's dominated FW Max vs Khabib sounded like a good one. Since he's half the LW as he's a FW, Tony's out, Conor's future is up in the air and because Poirier already beat Gaethje he's next, even if it is a pointless fight.

    I honestly don't know if TS was trolling. I don't think he was, but he simply couldn't spell "Gaethje" and didn't know Poirier already beat him.

    Reported for either trolling or being dumb.

    I once thought Dustin was just a tough journey man, but the dude has been proving himself as a top contender over and over.
    He could very well be a case of MMA's own cinderella man.

    You can’t comprehend how Poirier got so good at it , which is different. Beating Justin, Pettis, Eddie and Max in a row makes you elite. Fighters evolve.

    Dustin would knock the head of Tony to the point that Tony would think he is the Lord himself and he is gonna save the world. Pettis dropped Tony, Dustin will knock his head off clean

    Dustin murdered Gacje you silly man
    He KOed Eddie Alvarez twice
    Almost dropped and fininshed Max Blessed, who has never been beaten in whole career like he was in 1 round

    Tony is a great fighter but Dustin is very very sold

    Until when people will stop underrating Dustin P ?
