UFC FIGHT NIGHT POIRIER VS. GAETHJE LIVE
Saturday, April 14
Gila River Arena
Poirier has lost just once in his last eight fights, whilst Gethje has lost just once ever, although this was in his last bout against Eddie Alvarez. The card features a tasty welterweight scrap between Carlos Condit and Alex Oliveira and middleweight Israel Adesanya continuing to make a name for himself after a thrilling debut in February.
Leading the way is a main-event matchup between two top lightweight contenders in Dustin Poirier (22-5, 1 NC) and Justin Gaethje (18-1), with the former listed as a small -145 favorite (bet $145 to win $100) on the UFC odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.
Gaethje and Poirier both have a common recent opponent in former 155-pound champion Eddie Alvarez. Gaethje, who is listed as a +125 underdog (bet $100 to win $125), suffered his first career loss to Alvarez in his last bout via third-round knockout at UFC 218 last December 2.
“It’s not [a sustainable style] and I said that when he was with World Series of Fighting,” Poirier told MMAFighting.com. “I’m good friends with [American Top Team coach] Mike Brown, who’s also an MMA mastermind. He understands fighting and understands styles and matchup, and I’ve told him that before, that this guy is going to have to switch his fighting style or he’s going to have a short career.
“[Gaethje] is going to have a bunch of fun paydays and a bunch of memorable fights but it’s not going to last. Once it starts going downhill, it’s going to go down fast for him fighting like that. Of course he’s going to catch guys here and there, win some bonuses, and like I said, have some great fights that people are going to remember. And it seems like that’s what he’s fighting for.”
