If the rumored Colby Covington vs Dustin Poirier fight actually gets booked, then what does that mean for the rest of the welterweight division?
With Colby being the clear next best behind Kamaru Usman, I personally think it would only leave more questions as to what’s next for either fighter. I feel like Colby would have virtually nothing to gain rankings wise from a win being the number one contender in the division right now. It would just be a win against a lightweight in my opinion.
Now if Poirier was to win then where would that put him in the division? Don’t get me wrong I think there’s some great matchups at welterweight for Dustin, but where do you place a guy that just moved up to the weight class and beat the number one contender when you have guys like Khamzat Chimaev and Belal Muhammad Who are still waiting behind Leon Edwards for their shot at Usman?
I’m not Against the idea of a Colby vs Dustin matchup, I think the known animosity between them only adds to the story and the case to make that fight. I just feel like a win for either one would just leave more questions. Let me know what you guys think, I’m here to argue!😏
