Justin Gaethje named a likely opponent

All MMA News

“We have big fights ahead of us,” MMA Mania quotes the American. “Championship fight, Benil vs. Gamrot, and Chandler vs. Poirier. Someone has to fight the winners and losers in these fights. I don’t think I will fight the winner of the title fight, but I could fight the winners of other fights. Unless I want to fight Benil.”

“Ideally Poirier should beat Chandler and then I would like to fight Dustin. He beat me and I would like to take revenge. It was Fight of the Year, maybe even Fight of the Decade. It was a hell of a fight. Dustin is ranked first or second in the rankings, and I need two or three wins to get a title shot. So yes, this is ideal. I’ve told the UFC that I’ll be ready to fight next year, we’ll see how it goes.”

Recall that the duel between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje took place in April 2018 and ended with the victory of “Diamond” by technical knockout in the fourth round.
