And those are the results! We are certainly in for one epic matchup in the main event, a rematch from one of the best fights of 2018 between Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier” and Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje. If there are two men who are worthy of fighting for a BMF title, then it is hard to argue beyond these two men. The rest of the main card is equally excellent, and is a must watch from Salt Lake City, Utah. The co-main event sees Alex “Poatan” Pereira making his long-awaited move up to 205 pounds to take on perennial contender Jan Blachowicz. Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson and Michel Pereira clash in an extremely fan friendly welterweight clash, whilst part two of that sees Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson takes on Bobby Green in another epic fight. The main card is opened with a banger of a welterweight fight between Michael Chiesa and Kevin Holland.

Make sure to tune in for UFC 291 tomorrow night! Trust me, this is a card you do not want to miss.


[Scratches record] Yeah, that's me. You're probably wondering how I ended up here...or not. My name's Keelin McNamara, and I am an AVID combat sports fan. Always have been, and probably always will be. I started writing and podcasting about MMA in the Summer of 2020 (yeah, we don't talk about that here either). I've been doing it ever since, and have loved every single minute of it! Thanks for checking out whatever it is you're reading - I hope you enjoy it!
