Former UFC middleweight contender Mike Swick breaks down Dustin Poirier versus Charles Oliveira for the lightweight title at UFC 269.

Swick on the mental edge of being champion:

“I think Oliveira is doing the best he has ever done. He looks fantastic. He’s the champion so he’s got that momentum. I think when you become a champion and you have that belt, your level rises. We’ve seen it countless times where fighters are really good but when they win the belt like Jon Jones especially. He was good. He fought Stephan Bonnar, fought a bunch of guys, Matt Hamill. But when he won the belt his level just increased cause your confidence. It’s mental. So Oliveira has that mental kinda…he’s the champ now.”
