Watch: UFC Legend Bas Rutten Breaks Down Joseph Duffy Vs Dustin Poirier

Bas Rutten gives his thoughts on the UFC Dublin main event, which pits Joseph Duffy against Dustin Poirier in a highly significant lightweight showdown.

There are few men on the planet who possess the depth of knowledge and understanding of MMA that Bas Rutten does. The Dutchman was a pioneer of the sport in a time when it was misunderstood and a great deal less popular than it is today. He is a former UFC heavyweight champion, as well as an experienced coach, analyst and commentator.

Thus when Bas speaks about fighting, you should all listen.

In the video below, the charismatic Rutten breaks down the headline fight of the UFC’s fast-approaching Dublin show, a match-up between Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier.

Rutten speaks of Duffy’s educated boxing and movement, as well as his considerable submission skills.

“You can see the crisp punching and head movement that Duffy learned during his hiatus as a professional boxer. But don’t forget not to focus too much on the boxing because “Irish Joe” is a submission specialist first and foremost”

Rutten, however, feels that Duffy is taking a major step-up in class against Poirier, who he stated has “looked great” since moving up from featherweight.

“El Guapo” finishes the segment with a line that illustrates why this is such an intriguing bout.

“This is a great fight where both fighters have many ways to win, and it automatically also means many ways to lose”

Due to the fact that both men are exceptionally well rounded, and have proven capable of finishing their opponents in such a variety of ways, this fight is an extremely tough one to predict.
