We are a few weeks away from the most anticipated title fight of the year due to a clash at UFC 242 in September on the title ification matchup as lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov and interim champion Dustin Poirier.
To be held in Abu Dhabi, the title fight will be published once and for all as the best 155-pound fighter on the planet is looking for a total of twelve times, numbering 25 inside the octagon.
In the meantime, Pierre has won a killer row champion and drawn against former title champions, including Anthony Pettis, Eddie Alvarez, Justin Goethje and Max Holloway. His most recent win over “Blessed” at UFC 236 earned him the first taste of UFC gold.
His first time loss to Khobir would be a great one for Chirti, “Diamond”. The “ag gull”, however, gave Portier a further hurdle to go from pound to pound, and even set a rematch against Conor McGregor.
Before the world title fight, the UFC released a flashing promo video highlighting each fighter’s biggest win and path to the top of the mountain, which you can see embedded above.
