Masvidal explains why he considers Poirier the favorite to fight Chandler

Former UFC welterweight title challenger Jorge Masvidal believes that former holder of the promotion's interim lightweight belt Dustin Poirier will defeat Michael Chandler at UFC 281.

I’ve been watching Chandler for a very long time. Phenomenal athlete, great wrestler, but I think Dustin smokes him. In like those moments where the bullets are flying, Dustin finds a way always to remain calm and cool, and Dustin is going to catch him.

The 33-year-old Poirier had his last fight in December 2021 at UFC 269. That night, he faced Brazilian Charles Oliveira in the octagon. Dustin lost the fight by choking in the third round. The 33-year-old Poirier has 28 wins and seven losses under his belt.

Chandler, 36, made his last UFC appearance in May of 2022, at UFC 274, beating Tony Ferguson by TKO in the second round. He has 23 wins and seven losses under his belt.
