Michael Chandler and Dustin Poirier seems to have put their differences aside as they get ready to take each other on this weekend at UFC 281.

The two had to be separated earlier this year at a UFC PPV event, however it has seemed that the two have buried the hatchet. The two had gotten into an altercation that caused the security to get in between the two of them and escort them out. Due to this, the fight between the two has gained a ton of traction and excitement from fans. The bout could possibly determine who the next title challenger will be.

Poirier had claimed that Chandler was trying to be someone he wasn’t and that annoyed him, causing him to go at Chandler.
