Furthermore, UFC 299 delivered a memorable win for lightweight great Dustin Poirier. His W over Benoit Saint-Denis was another legendary pelt to add to his trophy case and after getting his 22nd victory in the Octagon, Burgos, and Walker discussed if the win moved “Diamond” into the top three of the greatest lightweights of all-time discussions.

During the March 14 edition of the Ringside Intel podcast, the guys also looked at the possibility that Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson in July will be one of the biggest fights of 2024 in boxing, and if Francis Ngannou’s recent loss guarantees he will make his PFL debut next.
