UFC 302!!

Dustin Poirier hopes the third time’s the charm in his pursuit of the UFC lightweight championship. Poirier looks to unseat current titleholder Islam Makhachev in the main event of UFC 302 on June 1 in Newark, New Jersey.

UFC president Dana White announced Makhachev vs. Poirier during the UFC 300 post-fight press conference in April. The booking was a mild surprise considering Arman Tsarukyan and Max Holloway had better claims to a title shot after beating Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje, respectively.

“The Diamond” fights for the belt after a Round 2 knockout of Benoit Saint Denis at UFC 299. Poirier (30-8, 1 NC) looks to finally become champion after falling short against Khabib Nurmagmoedov, Makhachev’s mentor and coach, in 2019 and Oliveira in 2021. Makhachev (25-1) rides a 13-fight winning streak, making his third title defense after consecutive wins against former featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski.

UFC 302’s co-main event has former UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland taking on heavy-handed action fighter Paulo Costa in a five-round, non-title bout. Strickland and Costa are set to fight for the first time since losing to middleweight champ Dricus du Plessis and former champ Robert Whittaker, respectively.
