The UFC continues to stack UFC 299, as a 5-round contender eliminator bout between Dustin Poirier and Benoit Saint-Denis was just added to the card.

It's an interesting fight, as many people didn't know which direction Dustin Poirier wanted to move at this point. Did he just want big money fights? Did he want to retire?

It appears as though the answer was None of the Above, as Poirier instead seems willing to fight a young contender in order to gain another shot at the title.

Poirier is coming off of a loss to Justin Gaethje for the BMF title. Prior to that, Poirier had stoppages over Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler, and a loss to Charles Oliveira.

Poirier, who is in the second half of his career, seemingly wants another shot at the gold.

In his way will be Benoit Saint-Denis, who has five straight wins in the UFC. On the other hand, Saint-Denis has not yet faced anybody close to Poirier in terms of pedigree and experience in big fights.
