UFC 178 on Saturday may be headlined by Demetrious Johnson and Chris Cariaso, but it's not the whole story. In fact, it may not be the most enthralling fight on the card. That distinction may land upon a main card bout between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor. It is a featherweight bout with high implications that could establish one of the next men to jump into the title picture. There is also some animosity. McGregor is a showman and a seller, while Poirier is a no-nonsense bayou boy who has read news >>
