Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier are going to throw hands for the second time this Saturday at UFC 236, and recently the promotion posted Forrest Griffin’s take on the headlining fight.
Holloway is moving up from featherweight, where he is that division’s ruling king, to challenge Poirier for an interim lightweight title. When the two met way back in 2012, Poirier won the fight via first-round submission.
