    Poirier really has a shot here. His undoing is usually against big punchers. That Khabib is not. Really good fight. I actually think Poirier and Gaethje have the best chance at beating Khabib. Followed maybe Cerrone and Ferguson.

    Do you think Poirier's Jujitsu will be effective against Khabib?

    I think if Poirier can nullify his grappling and keep it standing he can win. If Khabib gasses/here hurt then or course Poirier BJJ can be effective.

    Is Poirier a black belt in bjj? If so, it could turn out to be a deciding factor after being taking to the ground.

    Yeah i'm happy for Poirier he deserves his shot and I hope he can get it done against Khabib with the winner getting Ferguson next after he disposes of Cerrone.
    I have wanted to see Poirier against Fergurson for years as it has fight of the year written all over it and I really like Fergusons chances against Khabib if Dustin doesn't get the win at UFC 242

    Khabib is always on the defensive waiting for the right time to strike and put you in his choke hold. I don't poirier winning here because he would come with an attacking mindset and let his defense open. Khabib is a slow tiger.

    Two very good fighters!
    Hoping that Khabib gets the win so that we can maybe finally get Khabib vs Ferguson.
