Dustin Poirier's head coach former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown believes his fighter made the right choice, choosing a trilogy bout with Conor McGregor over a UFC title shot.
Brown spoke with MMAJunkie ahead of Poirier's third fight with McGregor at UFC 264 on July 10 and explained why he thinks the trilogy bout between the two lightweight contenders could end up being the promotion's biggest pay-per-view event of all time.
“Yeah, this is the right choice,” Brown said. “Conor is the biggest draw in this sport, and I think this will sell more pay-per-views than any other fight. This potentially will be the biggest pay-per-view of all time. It really has that capability, and it probably will. I believe that, and the title fight will always be there after. He’s still getting better all the time, and another guy who has paid his dues more than anyone. These are the guys that took the long road, the guys that deserve it more than anybody.”
