Josh Emmett, #7-ranked UFC featherweight, analyzes the lightweight title clash between Dustin Poirier and Charles Oliveira on Dec.11 at UFC 269

Emmett breaks down Poirier vs Oliveira:

“I think [Oliveira] best chance would be getting Poirier to the cage and then somehow trying to hop on his back or something like that. But then we’ve seen Oliveira’s striking has been getting better and better, too. It’s super crisp and he throws those big knees right up the middle as well that can catch you. 

“But it also depends on which Oliveira shows up, you know. Cause we’ve seen some where he’s….noone can beat him. Then we’ve seen some fights, in the past, where it wasn’t going his way and then those people seem to play off that momentum and end up beating him.”
