Despite quick rise, Dustin Poirier still "three of four years" away from UFC title shot   [View Full Version]

With fast, hard punches and kicks and an aggressive style, Dustin Poirier certainly looks the part of someone who could give UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo trouble.

Of course, if it holds true that a good opponent makes a fighter look good, credit is also due to his most recent one, Jason Young. The British newcomer went toe-to-toe with Poirer for three rounds in one of the more exciting fights of this past Saturday's UFC 131 event.

Just take it one fight at a time. Guy is only 22.

Which makes my life more depressing, b/c I'm 21.

It's true. He still has a lot of growing to do. I'm glad he's realistic.

I'm glad you noticed lol. I don't know Dustin but I know people who do know him and I've heard that name was intentionally given to him by Tim Credeur b/c of something he did was "screechlike."

I think that might be the point. Solid nickname.

I mean I remember Dana saying this about Bones Jones nine months ago. If you keep winning and get popular fast you will get your title shot.
