MIAMI – Trash talk, grudges, and hatred weren’t part of the equation in getting fight fans excited for UFC 299‘s co-main event.

Dustin Poirier (29-8 MMA, 21-7 UFC) and Benoit Saint-Denis (13-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) have let their highlight reels do the talking for them ahead of Saturday’s clash at Kaseya Center. The two lightweight contenders will fight in a five-round, non-title fight that could have major implications for the division.

Friday, the two fighters came face-to-face during the ceremonial weigh-ins and faceoffs where the intensity and respect remained.
