Dustin Poirier - badass, UFC featherweight wins record holder

Dustin Poirier - badass, UFC featherweight wins record holder

It seems like just yesterday we were watching Fightville, marveling at the skills of this young up and coming fighter. He was the guy who went 1-1 in the WEC, but also derailed Josh Grispi's career on short notice. The guy who had one of the best fights ever against the Korean Zombie in 2012, and now a fighter who has the most featherweight wins in UFC history. That's nuts. What's even more impressive about Dustin being 8-2 in the UFC over the last three years is the fact that he fights so consistently fun no matter what. If the dude doesn't get it done at first, he bites down on his mouthpiece and gets it done however he can. He's the anti-Diego. He's as cerebral as you can get for being a human who gets punched in the head for a living. He's dangerous standing up and on the ground.

Damn, this Dustin Poirier is just destined for greatness. If not, he'll be a fan favorite for a long time.

Here's Dustin coming back in the second round and breaking Akira Corassani's nose after being rocked early on in the fight. Bravo.

AKira had him dead to rights. Seriously! Akira froze up for some reason didnt go for the finish. Dustin is wide with is sloppy punching. Who the fuck leads with a uppercut that almost simulated "I RYU KEN" punch. Yeah that what caught Akira, but Dustin wide striking is what got him in trouble. He just didnt look good...serious. ..he was almost like watching Nate Quarry striking ......Chin up....face first...wide bombs...ATT has done shit for his striking improvements.

I think Poirier is a bit of a jackass how he gets into people's faces at the weigh-ins. I was actually hoping for Corassani to win. And he almost got him too in the first round. Corassani looked very crisp and a lot better than in his last fight.

The faces he gets into belong to assholes. He is much more respectful to other fighter's, like the Korean Zombie.

I really respect Poirier. Watching him rise from literally nothing other than by guts, spirit, & own dedication & determination. If you haven't seen "Fightville" yet, make sure you do because it does show his sacrifices & grittiness coming from trailer park hell & climbing up by his own hard work, scraped by for gym fees, proper nutrition, etc. If you have seen it, maybe watch it again to remind yourself why this kid is so full of heart-if there's some cockiness in his excitement before each fight? It's well-deserved.
