UFC: Dustin Poirier feels Justin Gaethje will have a short career - Dustin Poirier

The fireworks will surely fly when highly rated UFC lightweights Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje will go head-to-head inside the octagon. Poirier has been putting in some really strong performances and will be looking to continue his dominant run. While he is usually a man of a few words, he recently had plenty to say about his upcoming opponent. While talking about Gaethje, Poirier claimed that he will have a short career.

Poirier recently gave an interview to MMA Fighting. He talked about Gaethje having a dangerous style and also revealed that Eddie Alvarez has been ducking from a rematch against him.

Justin is a fighter’s fighter, people like to watch him fight. He’s a little bit of a brute. He out-toughs guys and you know that he’s a guy who doesn’t break mentally. You have to break his body. You have to short-circuit him. You have to make his body stop working. He has a never-die attitude and I respect that about him, and I know what he’s bringing to the table. I know how dangerous he is, the power he brings and the grit he brings to the fight.

I’m not looking to go out there and get damaged and have a bloodbath, but I’m a fighter deep down inside. So no matter how much I try to tame that beast, when the going gets tough, it comes out. I’m glad I have that because it’s gotten me far.

But this is going to be the bull versus the matador and I’m going to finesse him out there. I’m going to show my full skill set, my speed, my accuracy, everything I’ve been working on for 11 years. I’m going to show, once again, that I’m going to be the best in the world.

I’m not really chasing rematches. I’m chasing gold. And whatever fight can get me closer to being a world champion, those are the fights that I want. Of course I wanted the Eddie rematch, just because of the way it ended and he was still ranked No. 3 at the time, so I was like I need to get that fight back. He was the only guy without a fight as well in the top five when I was trying to push for the fight, and it just made sense. I knew if I beat him, I would be really close to a world title.
