A new fighter is representing Lafayette and Baton Rouge on the fight-scene in a major way by winning the opening fight of 'Dana White's Contender Series' on ESPN. AJ Fletcher won by knockout in the first round with a spectacular flying knee that has many believing he could be the next UFC big fighter to represent South Louisiana.
New reports by UFC insiders show that Commissioner Dana White is open to holding upcoming events in Texas with the state recently announcing that it will be reopening 100%. White has contacted Texas Governor Abbott and while Dallas may not be a possibility, Houston is a top choice for the UFC per White.
After it was assumed that Dustin Poirier would be a guest on Joe Rogan's incredibly popular podcast, 'The Joe Rogan Experience', that assumption was confirmed when the show uploaded the two hour podcast today along with some select video clips from the interview.
The Lafayette Legend, Dustin "The Diamond" Poirier has stayed quite busy since his last UFC victory over Conor McGregor, mostly promoting his new hot sauce and the Good Fight Foundation. A recent Twitter post from the Louisiana native shows that he may soon be a guest on one of the world's biggest podcasts.
