Justin Gaethje is back in action at UFC Fight Night Philadelphia, facing Edson Barboza in the main event of the show.
If there is one fighter that Gaethje would like to fight again, it would be Dustin Poirier.
“As much as I respect (Anthony) Pettis, I won’t be looking for that fight after I win here,” he told MMA Junkie. “I want that fight back (with Poirier). I have to have that fight back.”
Gaethje and Poirier first met back at UFC On Fox 29, with Poirier scoring a fourth round TKO win on that night.
Another fighter that Gaethje was previously linked to was Al Iaquinta, but Gaethje has already put the possibility of a fight against Iaquinta behind him.
“Al’s a (expletive), so I’m done with him,” Gaethje said. “He’s a (expletive), man. I’ve tried to fight him so many times. He’s signed up and backed out, and I’ll put no more effort into him until he’s the only shot to my title.”
UFC Fight Night Philadelphia takes place on Saturday, March 30 from the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Edson Barboza and Justin Gaethje headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on ESPN.
