After plenty of back-and-forth on social media over one guy said yes, but the other said not yet, a rematch between Dustin Poirier and Eddie Alvarez now is official.

Not only is it official, but it Alvarez (29-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and lightweight rival Poirier (23-5 MMA, 15-4 UFC) will headline UFC on FOX 30 in July. UFC officials made the formal announcement of the main event today.

This is a better and more competitive fight and main event to watch, than Nicco Montano vs. Valentina Shevchenko. Valentina likely would have beat in Nicco's head until the ref stopped it, where Alvarez vs. Poirier could be a fucken war and potential FOTY candidate.

Even though this is a better headliner. I'm still pissed I don't get to see that flyweight title being fought for. Because of that, Nicco Montano is one of my most dislike fighter, currently in the UFC.

Less than four weeks after posting these photos to social media, Poirier signed a bout agreement to face Eddie in Calgary.... Yet, Nicco won’t sign the bout agreement against Valentina for Calgary because she got her tonsils removed a couple weeks ago... like get the fuck out of here!


The UFC just cut Yair for not signing a bout agreement to fight Zabit. They should keep that trend going and strip and cut Nicco for not wanting to defend her belt against Valentina. Getting her tonsils removed is a bullshit reason to not sign a fight that's happening months down the road. It's pathetic and way worse than Woodley, imo.

This should be a crazy fight again, both guys are durable as fuck, but Alvarez can always take that bit of an extra beating and keep coming. Rooting for Poirier here as I want to see him get a title shot, the amount of good guys he's fought and wars he has been in should have already warranted the title shot.

Usual recovery time for tonsillectomy is two weeks, with some patients requiring additional surgery. She would know by now if it did not go well and probably would have said such. I could see it interrupting her training in a big way for a week, contact for 2-3 weeks, and possible diet and nutrition problems for up to 3 weeks. Imo these are worst case scenarios. It doesn't seem very likely that she's having all these complications.

I like DP vs Eddie. This is an essential rematch and the winner has to fight for the title after the fact.
