About UFC 291

In the main event, #2 ranked lightweight contender Dustin Poirier takes on #3 Justin Gaethje in a rematch for the vacant BMF title. For the uninitiated, the BMF title is an unsanctioned belt first won by Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 after defeating Nate Diaz in Madison Square Garden. The belt does not represent a division but rather represents a mindset and a way of conducting oneself in the UFC.

Poirier is coming off his thrilling win over Michael Chandler last year and has two wins over Conor McGregor and Max Holloway. Former interim lightweight champion Gaethje is looking to even the score with Poirier. Gaethje has won two of his last three games, most recently a majority decision victory over Rafael Fiziev in March. He also beat James Vick, Edson Barboza, Donald Cerrone and Tony Ferguson, and also boasts a win over Chandler.

Elsewhere on the card, we will see former UFC light heavyweight champion and current No. 3 ranked contender Jan Blachowicz take on former middleweight titleholder Alex Pereira. Blachowicz hopes to deliver a knockout that will spoil Pereira’s light heavyweight debut. A former kickboxing star, Pereira is looking to establish himself as a 205-pound contender and break into the top five at light heavyweight by stopping one of the division’s most decorated athletes. The winner could potentially face Jiri Prochazka in the coming months to determine the next UFC light heavyweight champion.
