Dustin Poirier and Erik Koch to Meet At UFC 164

Two former top featherweights will meet at UFC 164 in the form of Dustin Poirier versus Erik Koch.

The two featherweights originally were suppose to meet at UFC 143, but both fighters fell off due to injuries.

Poirier is coming off of one of the biggest losses of his career against Cub Swanson, which was a short notice fight for Poirier. Poirier is 1-2 in his last three after going on a five win tear in the UFC and WEC.

For Koch, he is coming off of the biggest loss of his career after his loss to Ricardo Lamas cost him his title shot against champion, Jose Aldo. Before that, Koch was riding a four-fight win streak.

UFC 164 takes place on August 31, in Milwaukee at the Bradley Center. UFC 164 also has a heavyweight fight between Brandon Vera and Ben Rothwell.
