Dustin Poirier Plans Wrestling-Based Attack Vs. Anthony Pettis

Dustin Poirier and his coaches believe they have found a weakness in the game of Anthony Pettis.

“The Diamond” meets the former UFC lightweight champion Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 120 in the main event.

Earlier this week on UFC Tonight, Poirier discussed the fight.

Poirier on how he’ll fight Pettis: “I’ve been working on my wrestling at American Top Team. I feel like that’s his biggest hole in his game. We know he has amazing kickboxing.”

Poirier on why he’s stumbled in big fights: “A lot of that is overthinking, over caring. I have to go out there and just have fun. I’m going to go in there and show the world what I do.”

Poirier on if he’d face James Vick next after his callout: “He deserves a guy of our caliber after his win. But I feel like I’m one win away from the title. I want the winner of Alvarez – Gaethje or Khabib vs. Barboza.”
