Dana White Announces Two New Fights Featuring Dustin Poirier And Charles Oliveira

Dana White has announced Dustin Poirier vs Benoit Saint-Denis and Charles Oliveira vs Arman Tsarukyan for UFC 299 and UFC 300, respectively. 

Poirier aims to follow up on the loss to Justin Gaethje at UFC 291, during which he was knocked out in the second round. That was Poirier’s second defeat in three fights as he missed out on the BMF title. Now, he serves as the co-main event attraction at UFC 299 in a five-round bout. Saint-Denis has won his last five UFC fights via stoppages inside two rounds. 

At UFC 300, the former undisputed champion Oliveira takes on the number-one-ranked contender Tsarukyan. They are both coming off wins, having stopped a common opponent, Beneil Dariush, in their last fight. White has confirmed the winner will face Islam Makhachev for the lightweight title. 

White Reacts

“What’s up guys! I just got back from vacation. Two fight announcements for ya. First, the co-main event in Miami, March 9, UFC 299, will be number three ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier versus number twelve ranked Benoit Saint-Denis. Saint-Denis is a on a five-fight win streak with all five coming by finish before the third round. He’s been saying that he believes he’s the new BMF of the UFC, and he’ll have the opportunity to prove it against Dustin Poirier who is an absolute savage and alawyas goes to war. These two guys agreed to fight but, they both wanted a five-round fight, so they got it. That is the co-main event of the Miami show.

“For UFC 300, number one ranked lightweight Charles Oliveira is taking on number four ranked Arman Tsarukyan in a number one contender fight. Oliveira was supposed to fight the champ Islam Makhachev, but Islam is stil recovering from an injury. Tsarukyan is coming off a vicious knockout of Beneil Dariush. The winner will face Islam when he returns this summer. There’s two big fight announcements for you now, I’ll have more for you Tuesday after matchmaking. It’s good to be back, see you Tuesday,” White
