Dustin Poirier explains why losing to Justin Gaethje is more difficult to accept than losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov

Despite facing a setback at UFC 291, Dustin Poirier finds it harder to accept his loss to Justin Gaethje compared to his defeat against UFC Hall-of-Famer Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The 34-year-old Louisiana native feels he is more skilled than Gaethje, which makes the loss more challenging for him to come to terms with. Previously, he had experienced a submission defeat at the hands of 'The Eagle' in their lightweight title clash at UFC 242.

'The Diamond' shared his thoughts during his appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani:

"Khabib was better than me. I lost Saturday to somebody who I think I'm better than."

He added:

"Yeah. I was away from home for nine weeks in training camp. I dieted 11 weeks, sacrificed so much, was really focused, man, was really, really focused, and felt great, the best I've ever felt. Honestly, the best I've ever felt."
