Cub broke my heart beating Pearson like he did, but he's going far. Poirer is getting KO'd.

FOTN here!

I think I'm going with Diamond Dallas Paige because he's hungrier which means he'll implement a smart game plan to win vs Cub's fan friendly striking style.

I think Poirier gets him with the d'arce choke.

Cub Swanson has improved a lot since he got knocked out by a flying knee against Aldo in like 8 seconds, and since he got submitted by Pulver in under a minute. He seems to be finding his rhythm these days and I'm picking him to win this fight. Poirier has a lot of skills too though so I wouldn't be surprised if he got the submission win either.

This fight should be great. Two very similar fighters who always bring excitement to the cage and give 100%. I could really see this one going either way, I'm picking Poirier to win but wouldn't be surprised at any outcome in this bout, I'd bet that this fight will likely be FOTN and thats saying something as this card has a lot of match ups that look like they should produce fireworks.

Wow, dunno who to pick... I really have no idea what Cub's grappling is like... When in doubt: go with the grappler
