Coach Reports Anthony Pettis is Fighting Dustin Poirier Next


It looks like Anthony Pettis has his next bout, as the former lightweight champ’s coach is reporting that “Showtime” will fight Dustin Poirier.

Recently the fighter’s longtime coach, Duke Roufus, posted the comments and image below. Pettis (20-6) is coming off a decision win over Jim Miller, after going 1-1 while competing in the featherweight division.

Poirier (21-5) fought Eddie Alvarez in May, but the bout was declared a no-contest, as a result of an illegal knee the latter hit the lightweight with. The only man to defeat Poirier in his last 5 contests is Michael Johnson.
