If you enjoyed the Poirier-Alvarez fight the good news is UFC wants to run it back ASAP, sources say. Too soon to say when, though.

IMHO I think theres no way Dustin & Eddie can top the first fight. Just leave it how it is. Im no Alvarez Fan, but that was a dope fight.

Headline on some FOX card sounds good to me.

 

Honestly, fighting each other sounds reasonable for both guys anyways.

Yes I agree. I hear there is a Fox card on LI in two months. 😁

One of the few instant rematches I approve of.  It was a great fight that ended inconclusively.  Both men think they would have prevailed in the end; both feel a bit robbed.  Give them chance to settle it in the cage.

It will be a new thing in the UFC.

 

They probably call it something different than interim .. maybe something like 'Champ replacement belt' etc lol

Some words traded over the twitter. The grammar section of Poirier's brain got scrambled from those knees apparently.

Yeah and stitches.

 

Both took too much damage to just "run it back" in a short time.

 

This will be at least 4-6 months imo.

Then he got a concussion for sure. What hoping that was not the case.
