Benoit Saint-Denis Analysis: Undefeated in his previous five bouts

Benoit Saint-Denis (13-1) lost his UFC debut on short notice back in 2021, but since then, he has won all 5 of his bouts. In an attempt to prove that he is the next title contender, the current 12th-ranked Saint-Denis will be facing a significant step up in competition this weekend at UFC 299 when he takes on Dustin Poirier, the division’s No. 3 lightweight and former interim lightweight champion. Following his UFC debut, which he lost by moving up to welterweight versus Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos on very little notice, Saint-Denis has demonstrated a tremendous improvement in his talents. He’s shown that he can adjust and get better at what he does. His latest performance at UFC 295 versus Matt Frevola showed evidence of his growth, as he nearly severed Frevola’s head with a vicious head kick.

 

Dustin Poirier Analysis: Looking to come back from a loss

In his most recent bout, Dustin Poirier (29-8) suffered a devastating knockout defeat to Justin Gaethje, marking just his third career knockout setback. When he faces the risky and fast-rising contender Benoit Saint-Denis, Poirier says he still has a lot left in him and hopes to make an impact and get himself back on pace. Poirier will be facing an opponent who is not a current or previous champion for the first time in 4 years, despite his vast experience taking on the best the UFC provides. Saint-Denis enters the battle with the ability to make it extremely dangerous because he hasn’t faced opponents on the same level as Poirier. But Poirier gives it enough force and hitting to actually demonstrate to Saint-Denis the fact that there are other degrees to this. Poirier has an opportunity to turn things around if he can withstand Saint-Denis’ early storm, hold on to takedowns, and apply significant pressure to him as the battle goes on.
