This weekend’s event will be headlined by a UFC Lightweight match between veteran contender Dustin Poirier and former WSOF Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje. Both fighters have amassed a decent following in the UFC. Therefore, this weekend’s event should do some pretty good numbers. By the looks of it, the weekend’s teaser sports betting odds are pegging Gaethje as the favorite. This is understandable, considering the type of run that he’s had in the UFC.

While Gaethje may be coming off a loss, the way the UFC newcomer performed against Eddie Alvarez has gained him a bunch of new fans. All in all, Gaethje comes in with an 18-1 professional record. While Poirier isn’t that impressive of a competition, a solid win over the veteran can thrust Gaethje into the title conversation. Considering we got a new lightweight champion this past weekend, there’s no chance Gaethje will be letting this opportunity pass him.

Like Gaethje, Poirier will be looking to make a compelling case for a title shot. Poirier enters this weekend’s action with a 22-5-1 professional record. While coming off a TKO win over Anthony Pettis, Poirier knows he needs a solid performance this weekend. Since Poirier is 2-1-1 in his last 4 fights, the veteran knows he needs a solid performance to convince betting sportsbook players that he merits a title shot.

Poirier vs. Gaethje

While Poirier has performed rather well as of late, there’s no denying he was on the losing end of his fight with Eddie Alvarez. The fight ended in a no contest due to an illegal knee. However, the controversy didn’t fare well for Poirier who lost some stock in his performance. And while Gaethje lost to Alvarez as well, there’s no denying that he looked extremely tough out there. All in all, Poirier might exhibit more technique in his approach, but Gaethje is a near unstoppable fore.

Gaethje by TKO in the 3rd

Condit vs. Oliveira: Oliveira via submission late in the 3rd

Adesanya vs. Vettori: Adesanya via decision

Waterson vs. Casey: Waterson via decision
