‘Poirier By Guillotine!’ – Final Thoughts & Predictions On UFC 302 From The MMA Community

UFC 302 is almost upon us, and many in the mixed martial arts community have been posting some late takes on the event.

The promotion hosts its latest pay-per-view card from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey tonight, where it could mark last chance saloon in Dustin Poirier’s hopes of achieving undisputed championship status in the UFC lightweight division.

Headlining UFC 302, Poirier is tasked with bringing an end to the reign of Islam Makhachev, a feat that then-featherweight kingpin Alexander Volkanovski failed to achieve in two attempts last year.

The co-main event also boasts considerable stakes, as former middleweight titleholder Sean Strickland looks to remain within touching distance of the belt. Having missed out on an immediate rematch with Dricus Du Plessis, “Tarzan” must stall the ambitions of Paulo Costa, who is facing the prospect of a long journey back up the ladder should he move to 0-2 in 2024.

Also on the lineup, fan favorite Kevin Holland makes the walk as a middleweight once again, top 10 heavyweight contender Jailton Almeida completes a quick turnaround following his first UFC loss this past March, and Randy Brown looks to open the PPV main card in style opposite Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos.
