UFC 291: Poirier Vs. Gaethje Pre-Fight Presser

The UFC 291 pre-fight presser went ahead as Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje will headline on July 29th, 2023, from Salt Lake City.

The pair will face off in their second bout following Poirier’s win in 2018 via a fourth-round stoppage. This time around, both fighters will compete for the BMF title.

Since that meeting, both stars have secured six wins in their last eight bouts, as the fight promises much.

In the co-main event, Jan Blachowicz takes on Alex Pereira as the latter looks to bounce back from his second-round defeat to Israel Adesanya in his debut at the weight class.

The winner will put themselves in a great position for a title shot at light heavyweight. With that being said, here were the key highlights from the presser.
