It remains unclear what the next step for Michael Chandler (21–5) as a professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter, but there are some rumors. After not having renewed with Bellator MMA, he himself wants to have a new opportunity inside the cage. This company’s three-time World Lightweight Champion is going to have offers from many others, including UFC, about which he spoke recently. Without confirming anything, he left some doors open.
It is still too early to anticipate what decision the veteran gladiator will make, but in a new post on Twitter he hinted that he wants to sign with the company chaired by Dana White. In addition, in it he made it clear who he wants his opponent to be. This being the case, he published an image of a diamond, referring to Dustin Poirier (26–6), whose nickname is “The Diamond.” “Man … People want it, and if it happens …” was the message he left hanging.
Given the aforementioned so far of both fighters, it would be interesting to see their faces in the Octagon. However, it seems clear that Poirier he’s right now for bigger fights, considering the gigantic present he has and what he wants for his near future. In fact, on the same social network, he has shown interest in both facing Nate Díaz (20–12) and Tony Ferguson (25–4) in two recent responses to fans. Either fight would be bigger for Dustin than ChandlerWithout disrespecting this, he is undoubtedly one of the biggest 155-pound names in the world.
Will you accept?
Dustin Poirier defeated Dan Hooker by unanimous decision in a real war, during the main event of UFC Vegas 4, developed in the Apex of the company. The judges saw the ‘Diamante’ win 48-47, 48-47 and 48-46, in a contest worthy of being considered one of the best of the year. The first two rounds went to Hooker for the quantity and quality of his blows, although Poirier was not far behind, the faces of both showed severe damage from the blows when they were bloodied.
The possibility of Poirier vs. Justin Gaethje II, regardless of whether “The Highlight” defeats Nurmagomedov or not. Dustin has a TKO victory over Gaethje, who is the current Interim Lightweight Champion of UFC. In this way, the pieces begin to move to find out what is most likely in this case. Of course, he wants to continue fighting and will seek a series of victories that will accommodate him among the contenders for a title.
