Dustin Poirier analyse on Justin Gaethje vs Charles Oliveira: UFC 269 and UFC 274 witnessed the loss of Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje to Charles Oliveira.

In UFC 269, in the third round, Dustin Poirier was hooked in a decisive near-naked choked by the Brazilian pushing the Diamond for a tap out.

While, Justin Gaethje at UFC 274, didn’t stand a chance even for round two with the DO Bronx, where he suffered the same faith as Dustin Poirier via a Rear neck choke in the first round and tapped out.

The Diamond in his recent interview opened up about the same mistakes that he and ‘The Highlight’ made with the Brazilian.

Dustin Poirier said, “I think he should have followed him up,” “Got on top, tried to finish the fight. You know, find out how hurt Charles really was. There’s only one way to find out: You’ve got to dive in.”

“Same thing with me – of course, you have to respect jiu jitsu,” Poirier said. “I’ve been doing jiu-jitsu forever. I’m a blackbelt, as well, compete with and train with the best guys in the world. I’m confident, and I have good jiu-jitsu. I just respected his too much that I didn’t engage. The plan was to by any means stay off the ground and don’t play jiu-jitsu at all with this guy.

“So, even in the second round when I ended up on my back, and he was on top, I just tried to get stood up. I tried to get a stalemate. I didn’t engage and use my jiu-jitsu offensively or defensively, and I should have. I should have created space. I should have attempted submissions and used that to create space and get back up.”

Ranking second in the lightweight division, The Diamond is waiting for a potential matchup to climb to the title fight once again.

However, he is being out of the octagon for a while and is waiting for a fight card.
