    This matchup is so hard to choose, Olivera with his grappling, Dustin with his striking, yet both aren't defenseless in either grappling or striking, im leaning towards cheering for the olive man as I've seen the man grow throughout the years and I'd love for him to grow his legacy.

    I favour Poirier to win probably by tko rd 3 or 4. There might be a few back and forth moments in the fight. Oliviera has massively improved over the years.

    So hard to call this one i always get it wrong anyway.
    I reslly want oliveira to beat poirier but i think he might get knocked out before he can get hold of him and submit him.

    Olivera. It's his time.

    He's vulnerable, but his striking is good enough for Dustin, and his ground game seals it for me.

    Poirier inside 2. Massive gap in skill between these two.

    Knockout. Oliveira is still pretty vulnerable especially in the early going, and if Poirier pressures him I just see him crumbling.

    Valid point, but Dustin is a very durable guy, not a KO you in the first few seconds kinda guy.

    Cody has a glass head, he just can't take a shot. Time to hang them up.
