The UFC 300, scheduled for the year 2023, has already been discussed and is eagerly awaited by fans around the world. The UFC wants to make this the most exciting event ever. Many boxers are competing for a spot on the card, including Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje in a trilogy fight.
There have also been rumors that Conor McGregor will make a comeback at UFC 300. Dustin Poirier expressed his desire to appear on the same card with the greatest event in the history of the UFC.
Dustin vs Justin – A trilogy fight at UFC 300?
“The Diamond” said in an interview with MMA Junkie that UFC 300 is a fantastic show to compete in. He expressed his interest and declared that he was prepared to fight Justin Gaethje again. Dustin says:
“I would take that fight and uh, 300 would be a great card to do it on, but we’ll see. If I were Justin, I might not risk it if he was guaranteed a title shot. Hey, this is a fight. People get antsy, we’ll see what will happen. But I’m open to that. What do you?”
Gaethje won the BMF title in this year’s final. The score is now 1-1, with each player still having one victory in their arsenal. The best way to conclude the conversation would be with a UFC 300 trilogy.
Dustin Poirier is ranked third in the UFC’s lightweight rankings, and Gaethje is ranked second. It’s clear that both fighters belong to the best in the UFC. A trilogy of fights is therefore inevitable.
The UFC’s light-weight division seems well prepared, as the current lightweight champion Islam Makhachev is scheduled to face Charles Oliveira. Conor McGregor will also be on the UFC 300 scorecard for 2024, according to rumors. Justin Gaethje against Dustin Poirier III is a possible matchup for UFC 300 given the current lightweight status.
