I couldnt say who will definitely win, this fight is a great matchup, i will pick Poirier only because i think Swanson is due some bad luck. its a 50/50 fight

i think with some solid takedown defense swanson will get the KO

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

I'm going to have to go back and watch the Poirier-Brookins fight, because I haven't seen it, but I was seriously unimpressed with Poirier in the Zombie fight. It's possible nerves just got the best of the kid, but he looked over-hyped to me. And really, the guy hasn't beaten anyone of note IMO. Brookins included.

I think that's part of the reason I'm liking Cub in this one. He seems refocused after the Llamas lost, and he has some serious power to work with. I think he might be too fast and too athletic for Poirier to take down and control, and I see Cub hurting him and maybe even getting the finish. The seasoned vet takes this one.

Poirier took the Brookins fight on late notice if I remember correctly. He was a top 5 guy until the zombie fight (which was a hell of a fight). I gotta go with Poirier. Anyone who has the same (rare) last name as me is a champ in my books.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Poirier was lighting him up... but started to gas. It's going to cost him if he cant sub him.
