It’s hard to pin down where exactly Anthony Pettis and Dustin Poirier reside on the food chain. Pettis was champ practically forever ago, and Poirier was almost a top contender, but the true elites of the UFC had their way with them, and so here they are.
And where is here? Headlining UFC Fight Night 120 in Norfolk, Virginia, which is a far cry from a slot on the main card of a pay-per-view at Madison Square Garden, but it’s at least something – right?
