LAS VEGAS STRIP MASS SHOOTING: Latest Updates; How You Can Help

Boehlke: Interview With UFC Fighter Dustin Poirier

UFC 195 will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday. The headline fight on the card is for the Welterweight Championship. The card will also feature Andre Arlovski (#2 Heavyweight), Stipe Miocic (#3 Heavyweight), Albert Tumenov, and Diego Brandao. But one of the most interesting fights of the night is scheduled as the “featured prelim” and will be streamed exclusively on the UFC’s online streaming service, Fight Pass. That fight is Joe Duffy against Dustin Poirier (#12 Lightweight), a fight that was originally scheduled as a five-round main event in Dublin but had to be rescheduled after Duffy pulled out due to injury.

It will be Poirier’s third fight at the 155 pound Lightweight division and looks like a reinvigorated fighter after first round KO’s of both Carlos Diego Ferreira and Yancy Medeiros. He earned Performance of the Night for each of those fights and is looking to do it again Saturday. Irish Joe Duffy is most well known as the last fighter to defeat Conor McGregor, but his 14-1 record has him on the brink of the rankings.

CBS Sports Radio 1140’s Ken Boehlke sat down with Dustin Poirier to talk about his upcoming fight, Fight Pass, the Food Network, and much more.
