Michael Johnson may be coming off back-to-back defeats, but “The Phenom” is warning Dustin Poirier about the dangers of facing a man who’s desperate for a win.
The lightweights will battle in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 94 tonight, which will take place in Hidalgo, Texas. The bout is going down at a time when both men have been headed in opposite directions.
It wasn’t long ago when Johnson had won four in a row, and was knocking on the door for a title shot. But, after dropping a tightly contested, decision to Beneil Dariush, he lost via UD to Nate Diaz.
Poirier, meanwhile, has won four straight since he was taken out by Conor McGregor, and decided to move up from 145 to lightweight.
Recently the UFC posted the “Lightweight Fireworks” video below, which features both men talking about tonight’s scrap.
