    Is Justin`s striking good enough to beat Oliveira?

    He probably has the best striking coach in MMA.

    Oliveira's size is what makes him most scary.

    I don't doubt Justin can pull off the win. Chandler and Poirier both hurt do Bronx. Justin is looking more polished than ever.

    Justin and Oliviera have been very easy to hit in their most recent fights.

    I agree, but Justin has always been easy to hit. I feel like his new trainer has finally gotten through to him, though, that he can't use the Dutch-style of Kickboxing at this level of MMA. And Justin's been making adjustments.
