Fans moved from boredom to exhilaration to boredom to exhilaration with Charles Oliveira — the most entertaining non-lightweight champ in a chaotic, seesawing night of combat sports action at UFC 274. Many legends of the game were active in reacting to the series of events including Dustin Poirier. 

Oliveira became the first UFC champion to lose his title on the scales, but he soon demonstrated to the organisation that he is the greatest with or without gold, submitting Justin Gaethje at 3:22 of the first round.

After his rear-naked choke finish of former interim champ Gaethje, UFC President Dana White reminded Oliveira that he is the No. 1 challenger for the lightweight championship. However, the Brazilian became the second champion on Saturday to publicly criticise Conor McGregor following his victory, so the future remains uncertain.

Tony Ferguson was severely knocked out by the UFC lightweight contender and former Bellator champion at UFC 274. 17 seconds into the second round, the official halt occurred. The lightweight match took place at Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, as part of the UFC 274 main event.

Overall, UFC 274 was a dynamic factor in the landscape of the Lightweight division and has open up many entertaining matchups.

Dustin possess great skillset. Although he doesn’t specialise in any form of martial art he is comfortable in fighting in all facets of the game. That being said, Dustin is 3-2 in his last 5. 2 wins out of those 3 were against Conor McGregor who is on the down side of his carrier and has won only one fight since 2016 hence beating him shouldn’t be remarkable in 2021.

His other win is Dan Hooker, He had a very competitive fight with Dan Hooker which again isn’t remarkable instead worrying for a world class fighter as Dan Hooker has lost 5 out of his 6 fights in brutal fashion where in he is getting finished left-right and centre.

He has also been defeated in bouts where the title was in line. He recently lost to Olivera and Khabib prior to that.

Dustin has been in some bouts where in his brain health was in jeopardy. He is well aware he got some work to do if he is truly concern about being the best in the world.

However, he has decided to turn his focus by commenting witless tweets, Running after Nate Diaz’s attention and hot on the heels of Conor McGregor. Recently he was witnessed to showcase his natural tendency, during the broadcast of UFC 274, Dustin tweeted out the following, “I’m better than these guys” 

Olivera had fought on the same card and he defeated Dustin in his previous bout in an emphatic fashion hence Dustin coming out making fatuous is a sign of many negative things. Either way, Dustin is very entertaining as a fighter and the stakes are high when he fights. His next opponent is still in question but most likely the fight would be fireworks.
