    is it just me or does Dustin P have the bext boxing in the UFC? I used to think it was Max but his lack of punching power has really been bothering me recently.

    Anyways that was an amazing fight we deserve a rematch when Do Bronx coughs up the belt

    Since I also agree that it's an amazing fight and had actually re-watched it a couple of days ago, you get the free fight video in your thread. Enjoy.

    Was a good fight. Dustin has turned it up to a whole new level. I was always a fan but never expected him to turn into one of the best out there.

    Doostin created patient Gaethje. Even Justin got tired of losing brain cells after that bout.

    Poirier has technically better striking but Justin has a lot more power.

    Hoping to see these guys run it back someday. Of course as long as that idiot McGregor is in the mix, we have to see rematch #1200

    this tells you all you need to know Gaethje’s fights.

    And patient Gaethje is a myth he still fights like a

    Alvarez too. Justin always got by on raw power and atheticism. Fighting those two guys who are sheer trench fighters made him realize he had to fight more defensively and pace himself better. The dividends showed in the Ferguson fight

    Dustin definitely has some of the best boxing in the UFC but Gaethje was still sloppy as hell at that time.

    Great fight that lived up to ths hype & maybe surpassed it. I would take Poirier again in a potential rematch.

    Was the commentary team biased towards Justin's kicks? I don't remember that, I do remember Dustin eating a lot of them. I believe Dustin has been quoted saying that's the most damage he's ever taken in a fight win or lose.

    Yes they were even when Gaethje was eating twenty punch combos to the face I’ve never seen commentary so weirdly off before

    For sure.

    dude is a badass and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he holds the belt for a good minute
