UFC 189: Aldo vs. McGregor fight card
A look at the big July 11th UFC 189 pay-per-view in Las Vegas, where Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor will compete for Aldo's featherweight title.
Former top ranked featherweight Dustin Poirier suffered a tough KO loss to Conor McGregor last year after weeks of intense smack talk leading up to the fight. He has since moved up and looked physically better at lightweight, where he has racked up two impressive first round stoppage wins.
While interacting with fans on twitter, Poirier was asked about his prediction on the upcoming featherweight title fight at UFC 189.
Although he says that bringing in a decorated Karate champ to mimic McGregor's movement "will definitely help", interestingly enough, he still picked his former rival to win the belt.

He also answered a few more questions relating to McGregor. While he did pick the Irishman against Aldo and stated that he believes Conor is "one of" the best guys in the division, he also states that Mendes and Edgar are bad match ups for him.
Nah I don't really believe in lucky shots. He beat me fair and square. Rematch would be different https://t.co/2p03KHqfmm— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) June 21, 2015
