The Real – Dustin Poirier, a video about Dustin Poirier by Marq Massegale

The Real

Dustin Poirier will face Justin Gaethje this Saturday night

The Real is a great series of videos. There are so many people doing great quality videos and films these days they are hard to keep up with. I’d like to think I see a lot of them, but undoubtedly I miss more than I see. I stumbled across this video, done by Marq Massengale and I felt it was really well done and a great profile on Dustin.

The video talks to Dustin about his growth from being an amateur in Louisiana all the way to fighting Conor McGregor in one of the biggest fights of his career.  It covers his family and gives great insight into what makes Dustin Poirier tick.  Dustin is a smart, thoughtful, talented young fighter and it’s nice to see that focused on rather than who can make the most noise and draw the most attention to themselves.

Dustin Poirier fights this Saturday night in the main event of UFC on FOX 29, against Justin Gaethje.  It is a huge fight and will be the headliner on a national network carried event. Since Dustin’s loss to Conor McGregor in 2014, he’s won six fights against only one loss. He’s currently ranked 5th in the UFC’s Lightweight division.
