So, about Makhachev. This guy’s been walking in some pretty big footsteps, thanks to his mentor, Khabib Nurmagomedov. And guess what? He’s been doing a stellar job. This Saturday, he’s putting his UFC lightweight title on the line against Dustin Poirier at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Makhachev’s not just stepping into the octagon; he’s riding a massive 13-fight winning streak. Last time we saw him at UFC 294, he absolutely demolished Alexander Volkanovski with a head kick and some follow-up punches. Talk about making a statement.

Poirier, on the other hand, is no slouch. The guy’s a legend in his own right, with wins over some of the biggest names in the sport. We’re talking Conor McGregor, Max Holloway, and Eddie Alvarez, just to name a few. His last fight? A knockout win against Benoit St. Denis at UFC 299. Poirier’s record is as impressive as they come.

But UFC 302 isn’t just about Makhachev vs. Poirier. There’s a whole lineup of fights you’ll want to keep an eye on. For starters, Paulo Costa is looking to bounce back in the co-main event against Sean Strickland. Costa’s had a rough patch lately, but this fight could be his ticket back to the top.

Lastly, we’ve got Randy Brown and Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos squaring off. Both guys are known for their exciting fighting styles, and this match promises fireworks. Brown’s been on a roll, but Zaleski dos Santos is coming in hot with a three-fight unbeaten streak.

So, there you have it. UFC 302 is shaping up to be a night full of drama, comebacks, and, of course, knockouts. Make sure you’re part of it. See you at the fights!
