Dustin’s stubborn, swapping style had to pay the price with 5 losses and to get the unbeaten record like Khabib’s is unbelievable. But Dustin did not collapse after the failures, he revived even more powerful like the Phoenix reborn in fire.
Young and brave puncher
Dustin Poirier is a UFC veteran. Although only 30 years old, he has been actively participating in the largest MMA tournament on the planet for nearly 10 years (2010 – 2019). His respectable MMA record marks 31 matches, including 25 wins (W), 5 losses (L) and 1 No Contest (NC) due to Eddie Alvarez’s invalid knee kick.
Dustin is a quite comprehensive boxer with sharp boxing techniques, high KO ability, thick physical style and often comes to the edge of the opponent with sharp attacks and smart moves. In addition to 12 wins against KO, Dustin owned 7 wins with a tightening (submission), a formidable BJJ black belt.
With a strong fighting style, technique and ability to allocate energy properly, the intensity of Dustin’s matches has always been pushed up very high and full of fan excitement. He has always been a bright candidate and frequently received the UFC’s Fight of the Night award.
In the proud achievement table of Dustin, you can see that one special thing is that he has never lost 2 games in a row. MMA experts consider Poirier to be a martial artist with a very high IQ and the ability to progress after the games is extremely respectable. If in the first time he appeared as a tight-locked master, then the boxing technique and his ability to move more and more perfect – clearly shown by a series of KO victories in the past 5 years.
For example, in the match with Justin Gaethje – another monster of the MMA arena, Poirier claimed to have been bloodstained and not awake when the opponent was in pain. He rushed towards Gaethje and took a hit but it was not very effective. The game could have ended sooner. Two matches later with Eddie Alvarez and Max Holloway, Dustin completely overcome this impatience. He made heavy but accurate combos like sniping, showing an extremely brave and cold martial arts mind.
