So I was casually studying some male physiques on Instagram, as one does when they cannot sleep, and I am happy to see that both Poirier & Khabib are looking goooood. I think they’re taking each other VERY seriously.

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Dustin Poirier: Tale of the Tape
Khabib Nurmagomedov is an undefeated name in UFC. With a winning streak of 27-0, he is an absolute beast and even defeated Conor McGregor at UFC 229. Poirier, too, on the other hand, is a pretty impressive fighter. With a win-loss record of 25-5, Poirier’s last four successive wins were against Holloway, Alvarez, Gaethje and Pettis. This makes him a strong challenger to Khabib.
Both these men are evenly matched in terms of experience. While Khabib remains a crowd favorite, especially at Abu Dhabi where UFC 242 is taking place, Poirier has a strong chance of pulling a win over the undefeated Russian!
Dustin Poirier is going to KO Khabib.
