Therefore, he took advantage of his dialogue with The MMA Hour to recognize that he has already finished with the best. Now, he would only need one to show who he is.

“It’s tempting, it makes people interested, it’s a hook, he expects me to bite it and beat Charles Oliveira and, ‘Ah, Gaethje, I have to give it to him now because he’s the one talking.’ This is how this game is. People talk and try to fix things. He plays the hands they have, and that is what he is doing. No man, I am a fighter. I am lucky enough now, with this year that I have had, I could walk away, “he said. Poirier.

What’s more, Dustin He remarked: “It’s a great position to be in, but these guys need yelling, and I’m the type to give it to them. And we can’t walk away like this. I was back at the big Airbnb, we liked a house party, I’m drinking Models and it was good. Gaethje has no recollection of going back and watching the fight, because I knocked him out, probably a little cloudy. I remember the night, it was a great night ”.

Wants to reign the division

“Damn, this is bad for you, is what I’m thinking. These guys are crazy, man, to take damage like that. But I think I’ll win both of them if they fight me the way they fought that night. Paid in full. You have to adjust it, be more technical. You have me as a thinking man, not just a brute, not just a wrecking ball, or you walk in there and get killed, ”the Lightweight contender deepened.

To close, Dustin Poirier He added: “I’m not going to go. I am a young man in his prime. I’ve seen Charles in many fights. He’s been in a lot of fights at a high level so I’ve seen him double down on fights before. But I’ve also seen him rise to the occasion and show up in adversity. The boy showed a championship mentality. He showed a championship effort – got hurt, bounced back, and broke up with the guy. There was no rest that night.
