Gaethje shattered the “diamond”. Makhachev is next!

UFC numbered tournaments usually end with one title fight, or even two at a time, and in rare cases, three at all. And although the UFC 291 card turned out to be just great, the main battle was fought by the second and third numbers in the lightweight ranking. As a result, they decided to put the title of BMF on the line, which seemed rather strange, because neither in relation to Geydzhi, let alone Poirier, does the word “asshole” apply under any circumstances. But on the other hand, it seems to be of some kind, and the winner will get the belt.

Before that, the fighters had already fought once and put on a first-class show – Poirier competently caught Geydzhi on the counterattack. The second fight between Dustin and Justin was expected with no less interest, because in addition to the supposed fireworks in the Octagon, the winner has every chance of becoming the next contender for the championship fight.

Both fighters not only like to work in the rack, but are considered almost the best in this matter, at least in the division, and Poirier does, perhaps, in the entire promotion. True, in this sense they are a little different – Dustin is quite good with excellent technique and timing, while there is no doubt that it is Geydzhi who hits the hardest.

It is not for nothing that from the first seconds of the fight they decided to put pressure on each other, threatening strong blows. However, they quickly switched to an exchange of kicks: Geydzhi attempted to hit the opponent’s legs with low kicks (she did something similar with the Khabib Nurmagomedov fight), while Poirier aimed similar “kicks” to his body.

However, by the end of the first minute of the fight, both seemed to remember that their main asset was boxing. And they began to try to make combinations. In the remaining time of the first round, Porrier’s advantage became noticeable – he delivered several rather powerful blows, which were noted by bruises and bruises on the opponent’s face, while almost all of Geydzhi’s blows were on defense or caught the opponent. opponent by chance.

At the start of the second five-minute period, Justin tried to rehab and crush Dustin, but this didn’t produce any notable results. Only when it seemed that Poirier again occupied the center of the octagon, Geydzhi dealt a decisive blow – the right straight forced the opponent to react to him, which made it possible to hide the haikik from the opponent’s gaze. That is why the knockout turned out to be so powerful and the referee Herb Dean immediately rushed to stop the fight.

After the fight, Gaethje announced that he now wants to fight for the belt with the winner of the rematch between Islam Makhachev and Charles Oliveira. And while Highlight was already losing to the Brazilian just over a year ago, wins over Michael Chandler, Rafael Fiziev and now Poirier definitely give Justin every reason to claim a title shot. At that time, Conor McGregor appeared on social networks, so Gaethje now has several interesting options to continue his career: a title or a potentially more profitable fight with the Irishman. What would Justin prefer?
