Just to point out for those who does not know, that Diego was involved in a nasty car crash in U.S. when a drunk driver hit him head on only TWO weeks before this fight. Missing weight was not a big thing after this, after all.

I don't get the hate for Diego. He is a very entertaining fighter who is very dangerous both striking and on the ground.

Yes he missed weight(for the first time) but as has been explained the guy was in a recent and serious car accident so hard to really fault him. He probably shouldn't have even been fighting.

Poirier is out of Brandao's league regardless. At least right now. Dustin is a legit top 5-7 fighter while Brandao still has a ton to prove.

At the press conference they asked Poirier about his outburst and he claimed Brandao threatened to knife him in the neck

He would need a knife to ever win this matchup... And even then that may not be enough.
