cool, been looking forward to his next fight. I was amazed at the beating he put on Grispi.

Same here kallous, I expect Grispi was even more surprised. Dustin looked great, looking forward to seeing more of him.

I think he's gonna beat Yahya even easier then Grispi.

Then hopefully they match him up against Koch. I think Koch would win but it sure as hell would be an exciting fight.

gotta be a bit weary. Yahyas got better jiujitsu than Grispi. i dont think grispi expected to be put on his back.

I think Poirier will keep it standing. His TDD is pretty good, Castillo was having trouble getting him down at 155 til Poirier kinda gassed.
