After beating Conor McGregor in head-to-head bouts, Dustin Poirier will enter the Octagon on Saturday night in search of the UFC lightweight championship.
Poirier entered the main event of UFC 269 as the favorite despite the fact that Charles Oliveira currently holds the belt. Poirier may end an incredible year by becoming the undisputed lightweight champion, but Oliveira is unlikely to push and will have plenty of incentive to defend her title.
In addition to the Oliveira-Poirier bout, UFC fans will also get to see Amanda Nunes take on Julianna Pena for the bantamweight title. Pena said a lot of trash before UFC 269, but Nunes doesn’t seem to care. She’s won 12 teamfights in a row, so it’s not surprising to hear that “The Lioness” is expected to overwhelm another opponent.
Will the champions keep their belts? Or will the challengers win?
