🔥 Dustin Poirier promised to hit Nate Diaz

American mixed martial artist, former UFC interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier has spoken about the hypothetical possibility of a fight with Nate Diaz.

“I don’t look too far into the future and I don’t plan fights that seem unrealistic. But if Nate Diaz comes back, I’m going to hit him.

His fight with Jake Paul? Nate has very good boxing, but he’s better suited for MMA: small gloves, weak punches in that range. But with boxing gloves, things are different. Everything is different there. Jake is a large, athletic young man. If I had to put money into this fight, I would put it on Jake,” MMAJunkie quotes Dustin Poirier.

“I had the idea to go heavyweight even before I lost the championship. Now I want to return the belt. If I do that, I can move up to heavyweight.

Alex Pereira is ready for his biggest challenge

Brazilian mixed martial artist, former UFC Middleweight Champion Alex Pereira spoke about who he considers to be the toughest opponent in the Light Heavyweight division.

“Biggest challenge at light heavyweight? I think it’s Jan Blachowicz. If I win this battle, it will be difficult for anyone to defeat me later. You understand? People keep saying, “He can’t fight. He’s not a fighter.”

Blachowicz is a strong contender. He was a champion, that’s all. If I win the battle with him, then the path will be clear.

Obviously, each fight will be difficult, but there will not be such a difficult opponent. So this is the biggest challenge”, — quotes the words of Pereira MMA News.

💬 And here is the comment from Stephen Thompson, who refused to fight!

“In the morning I made weight, as I have before absolutely every fight throughout my 11-year UFC career, but my opponent didn’t. This is not the first time my opponent has failed a weigh-in, and given similar experience in recent years, my team and I decided it would be unwise to let the fight stand.”

Kopylov also spoke about the fight between Porrier and Gaethje

Russian mixed martial artist Roman Kopylov shared his expectations for the main event of the UFC 291 tournament.

“It seems to me that revenge is always more difficult for someone who wins the first fight. It seems to me that this time there will be a very dangerous felling. These are two hard hitting strikers, so any punch can decide the outcome of the fight, and I’ll rate your chances as 50/50. Will the fight go all five rounds? Of course, I think that everything will end earlier, ”Kopylov is quoted in MMA.Metaratings.ru.

Arman Tsarukyan gave a categorical forecast for the felling of Porier and Getzhi

UFC lightweight (up to 70kg) fighter Russian Arman Tsarukyan shared his forecast for the upcoming rematch.

As for me, it will be Poirier. Yes again. He has the best boxing. If Gaethje tries to take him down, he will work and he can win. But if he stands up and tries to get past Poirier, he’ll never win. Porrier is simply the best boxer, he is a good puncher, and on top of that, he is a southpaw,” Tsarukyan said in an interview with The Schmo YouTube channel.
