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.”
