UFC commentator Jimmy Smith previews the lightweight main event matchup between No. 5 Dustin Poirier and No. 6 Justin Gaethje ahead of UFC on FOX 29 on Saturday.

Poirier (22-5, 1 NC) will try to inch closer to a title shot when he takes on Geathje. Coming off a TKO win over former champion Anthony Pettis in his last outing, Poirier has climbed into lightweight title contention. Another win will move him one step closer to a coveted title shot.

Gaethje (18-1) suffered his first career loss to former titleholder Eddie Alvarez in his last outing in December. He’ll look to get back to his winning ways against “The Diamond.”
