Justin Gatji celebrates losing to "idiot" Conor McGregor and aims to win the fight with Dustin Poirier
Public announcement: Justin Gatz hates Conor McGregor.
This isn't exactly the latest news at the moment, given that Justin Gatz has been bashing the "Infamous" (McGregor) in the MMA-focused media for the past few years. So you can imagine Gatji's glee when McGregor was knocked out at UFC 257.

Gatji stated: "He (McGregor) or his coach said he wants to have a title fight in the next rematch with Poirier. They're idiots. He was treated in a special way again and again, but he did not take advantage of this opportunity. This event was an opportunity for him to win. Right now, he wants to be Mr. Humble, but everyone knows he'd be an asshole if he won this fight. I like to watch this chatterbox get knocked out, and nothing makes me happier. It was great to see a piece of shit go down, I loved it.»


McGregor was ready to make another attempt to get the lightweight title, which currently belongs to Khabib Nurmagomedov. But top contender Dustin Poirier changed his plans at the main event of UFC 257 last weekend in Abu Dhabi, winning by technical knockout in the second round.
"Diamond" (Poirier's nickname) also ranks higher in the rankings than Gatji.
"I saw that Dustin is above me in the ranking. It's well deserved, " Gatji continued. - He's one, I'm two, Charles (Oliveira) is three, (Michael) Chandler is four. No matter what, I must defeat Poirier. I'll get to the top of the rankings, no matter what it takes. It was an amazing weekend for us lightweights. It's really shaken up the division, and it's really going to get the UFC organizers to come together and come up with some ideas. "The
fight between Gatji and McGregor is one of those options... Assuming that "Infamous" fulfills its promise.

Peter Yan not interested in Edgar-Sandhagen winner, welcomes back T. J. Dillashaw
I have some bad news for the winner of the Frankie Edgar vs. Cory Sandhagen fight. The fight in the ultralight category between the Top 5 contenders is scheduled as part of the upcoming event "UFC Vegas 18". It will be held on February 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Instead of taking part in this fight, the reigning 61-pound titleholder Peter Yan took aim at former champion T. J. Dillashaw. The latter returns to competition after a two-year suspension due to taking the EPO drug, which he used to lose weight and gain the title in an easier way.

"Edgar is older. It's small, its fan base is not very good, "said Ian." Sundhagen lost to Sterling. I think Dillashaw might. T. J. Dillashaw returned after a doping test. I want to fight him. It depends on the UFC. If the conditions allow, I will fight him whenever I want. Just make sure that this time he is not going to use anything forbidden. I think it's going to be a really great fight and I'm going to win. He's older. He had a 2-year break, during which he did not take part in fights. Today, if I remember correctly, he is 34 years old. It is older for the ultralight weight category.”


Ian, 27, won't have to worry about picking his next opponent unless he can get past top contender Aljamain Sterling at UFC 259, officially scheduled for March 6 in Las Vegas or Abu Dhabi.
The "Funk Master" (Aljamain Sterling's nickname) doesn't seem to share his views on Dillashaw.
Yang has been competing in the Octagon for less than three years, but has already won seven straight under the UFC banner. The only downside to" No Mercy " (Ian's nickname) is that he hasn't beaten any of the Top 5 in his weight class yet.
But that could change at the upcoming UFC 259 in just a few weeks.

Michael Chandler: in the UFC, I started my professional career with a fight with Dustin Poirier
Dustin Poirier is the most legendary winner of the UFC 257 tournament. He not only effectively knocked out Conor McGregor, but also provided one of the highest PPV rates in the history of the UFC (the percentage of earned funds in terms of each viewer). Now he has several good options for continuing his career: a fight for the lightweight title, a fight with Nate Diaz with a large prize pool, or a rematch with McGregor with huge prize money.
The second in line right after Dustin is Michael Chandler, who went from a rookie in Bellator MMA to one of the best fighters in the super-competitive lightweight division, defeating Dan Hooker by knockout. He has become a very popular fighter, as evidenced by his recent appearance on the Jim Rome show.

"I am extremely happy that after several setbacks in my career, I have the perfect opportunity to be involved in one of the most ambitious events in the history of the UFC," said Chandler. "Many times I thought that the door to the UFC would never open for me. In the end, when it did happen, I had a great opportunity, which I took full advantage of, and now I'm talking to Jim Rom himself. So everything turned out just fine!»


UFC president Dana White said that the fight of Poirier against Chandler in the category up to 70 kilograms is exactly the idea that should definitely be implemented. Unfortunately, Dustin Poirier said that he is not interested in such a fight. But Chandler definitely wants it.

"Definitely, this fight interests me," he said. "Dustin Poirier was my first opponent in the UFC. I think I'm perfectly suited for this fight, having a lot of respect for this man both inside and outside the Octagon. He's a true champion, it was just amazing to see him go out and beat Conor McGregor, one of the greatest fighters of all time."
"At the moment, our success guarantees the availability of new fights. Look, Khabib Nurmagomedov is the greatest of us all, but we all know he's leaving. Let him step aside, give up the belt, and we'll play it out between me and Dustin Poirier in the next quarter. I promise you that after this fight I will become the UFC champion. I hope that everything will turn out this way, and we will celebrate."
