Heck of a Morning: What are the chances Dustin Poirier vs. Michael Chandler winner gets title shot next?


Dustin Poirier and Michael Chandler will battle it out in a highly anticipated lightweight showdown at UFC 281. While there are contenders in the division on long winning streaks, or are looking for their shot at a big fight to get them in the title picture, could the Poirier vs. Chandler winner find themselves in a title fight in their next octagon appearance?

Heck of a Morning’s new edition features Mike Heck from MMA Fighting. He discusses the stakes for each fighter, if a champion bout is at stake, and if a loss will take either man out of contention for the title. Listener questions also include Carla Esparza vs. Zhang Weili and Israel Adesanya’s official weigh ins. Pereira appearing last-minute was considered a mind trick. Henry Cejudo is another example of MMA drama.

You can listen live to Heck of a Morning Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10 a.m. ET on the MMA Fighting Twitter Spaces.
