UFC 302: Dustin Poirier Unveils Custom Fight Shorts for Title Showdown Against Islam Makhachev

Dustin Poirier is set to make a statement in style as he gears up to challenge Islam Makhachev for the UFC lightweight title at UFC 302 this weekend. The fighter will be sporting brand new floral custom shorts, recently revealed on the Venum website.

The highly anticipated main event is scheduled to take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. This will be Poirier’s chance to shine as he faces off against Makhachev in a bid for the gold.

The trend of custom fight kits seems to be catching on in the UFC, with fighters like Max Holloway, Alex Pereira, and Zhang Weili all donning personalized gear for their respective fights. Poirier joins this exclusive club and couldn’t contain his excitement, sharing images of his new shorts on social media.

With odds stacked against him as a +490 underdog on DraftKings Sportsbook, Poirier is looking to make the most of this opportunity. His impressive knockout victory over Benoit Saint Denis at UFC 299 earned him the shot at the undisputed world title.

On the other hand, Makhachev will be aiming for his third consecutive title defense, hoping to match the record for lightweight title defenses set by Alexander Volkanovski in 2023. As the stage is set for an epic showdown, all eyes will be on Poirier and Makhachev as they step into the octagon at UFC 302.
