Can Poirier keep Khabib away ENOUGH to get to round 3 and start pushing him back? That is the real question for me. By round 3-4 Iaquinta was timing Khabibs shots pretty well, but had nothing left to attack.

Poirier decides to stop rushing in like a madman for 5 seconds and hes down. He has to throw caution to the wind and just keep going and going.

I think Tony is the only person who knows to properly take advantage of rocking Khabib

20-17 Nurmy.

We are about to see if Poirier has done enough to tire out Khabib and gets his shots to slowdown enough to see them coming. Dustin looks so tired though.

That guillotine was the stupidest thing Dustin could have done. Just throwing the fight away. So dissapointed in him and his team.

Man, I though Dusting came prepared but he is just as fucking stupid as he has always been.

Khabib's head is too big to keep hold of 😂

Feel like Dustin annoyed him trying that guillotine

He rocked him for a little bit, more than Conor offered but apart from that this went like every Khabib fight. A True Monster.

Dustin was reversed and passed for trying guillotines on Eddie, and he tried the same thing here. He was surprised he could not get Khabib away after he clinched the seat belt. He let himself be put behind the blAck bars over and over. His striking was pathetic and scared. Such a disappointment.

I thought he was going to finish Poirier early in the first.

So much for Poirier surprising with his wrestling.

Then again, Khabib is on such a higher level.
