Lightweights Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje will look to put on a show for the fans Saturday night as they square off in the main event of UFC on FOX 29.
The main card airs live on FOX.
Jimmy Smith offers his thoughts on the bout, which has the potential for “Fight of the Year” between “The Diamond” and the former World Series of Fighting champion.
Poirier has earned seven fight-night bonuses, including four “Fight of the Night” honors with Chan Sung Jung, Akira Corassani, Jim Miller and Anthony Pettis. In two UFC appearances, Gaethje has earned “Fight of the Night” honors both times vs. Michael Johnson and Eddie Alvarez.
