One of the best lightweights in the UFC and high-level boxer himself, Dustin Poirier has given his take on the latest debate for the best boxer in the UFC. Recently lots of UFC fans and UFC fighters are giving their opinion on a very interesting debate for the best boxer in the UFC. The debate for this started during the fight between Max Holloway and Calvin Kattar. Calvin before the fight had stated that he is the best boxer in the UFC but he got destroyed by Max in their five-round fight. At one specific moment, Max landed an amazing punch on Kattar and looked at the commentary team while screaming that he is the best boxer in the UFC while ducking a five-punch combination thrown by Kattar.
The video of the moment went viral and many UFC fighters came into the conversation and gave in their names for the best boxer debate. The top names that were regularly considered in this debate are Max Holloway, Conor McGregor, Petr Yan, Dustin Poirier, and Nate Diaz.
Conor Mcgregor is not happy with the other names on the list and is considering himself as the best boxer in the UFC.
I outboxed 3 guys on this list! There’s no one even remotely close to my boxing in the ufc. Even Dustin only got shots off post the leg damage. Everyone has been pucked around by me if we are going off boxing. Yan is good tho, i like his style. I’d rip him up in that shell tho. https://t.co/kjB61gqFGX

Petr Yan didn’t like the way Conor McGregor addressed him.
“Conor, we all know that you like to talk, but let’s get straight to the point if you really want to box or to fight, I don’t care about the weight or the ruleset. I bet you won’t show up
Dustin Poirier gives his take on Best Boxer in the UFC
Dustin Poirier is widely considered one of the best boxers in the UFC. He has evolved his boxing game over the years and has defeated many elite strikers across Featherweight and Lightweight divisions. Now he has taken part in the Best Boxer debate and has rated former Bantamweight champion, Petr Yan, as the best boxer in the UFC.
“I think Petr Yan. Just the way he moves. He doesn’t waste a lot of movements. His positioning is always crisp. He’s never out of position. He doesn’t load up while he’s throwing clean power shots. Good accuracy, works the body well, goes up, goes down. It’s just a lot of things that he does really, really well,” Poirier said (via SportsKeeda).
Petr Yan immediately appreciated Dustin Poirier’s pick and thanked him for that.
