As the UFC lightweight division continues to evolve, intriguing matchups capture the attention of fight fans worldwide. One such clash looms large on the horizon: Islam Makhachev vs. Dustin Poirier. The stakes are high, and opinions vary on who will emerge victorious. Former lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, who has faced both fighters in his career, shares his insights and predictions ahead of UFC 302.

Oliveira predicts that Islam Makhachev will retain his title. “I think Islam remains as champion,” he asserts. While acknowledging the unpredictability of MMA, Oliveira emphasizes Makhachev’s overall skill set and ability to control the fight.

Can Islam Makhachev Defeat Dustin Poirier?

 Makhachev, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, has been on a tear. His dominant grappling, relentless pressure, and well-rounded skill set have propelled him to the top. His recent knockout victory over former featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski showcased his power and versatility. Makhachev’s rise has been nothing short of impressive, and he aims to solidify his reign as champion.

Poirier, a battle-tested veteran, has faced the best in the division. His striking prowess, durability, and heart have endeared him to fans. In his last fight, he delivered a sensational knockout win over Benoit Saint-Denis, proving that he still possesses the ability to finish fights. Poirier’s experience and hunger for gold make him a formidable challenger.

Charles Oliveira, who holds a win over Poirier and faced Islam Makhachev for the vacant lightweight belt, offers a unique perspective. Let’s delve into his predictions:

 Oliveira believes that Makhachev’s grappling prowess will be a deciding factor. “Every striker that faces Islam is going to be the same thing,” Oliveira explains. Makhachev’s takedowns and ground control give him a significant advantage. Oliveira acknowledges that Poirier has heavy hands and can knock opponents out, but he leans toward Makhachev’s ability to avoid danger.

 Oliveira doesn’t underestimate Dustin Poirier’s power. “He definitely can knock him out,” Oliveira says, referring to Makhachev. Poirier’s striking game remains a potent weapon, and one well-placed shot could change the course of the fight.
