UFC Quick Quote: Dustin Poirier will finish Jonathan Brookins on Dec. 15

Rafael Suanes-US PRESSWIRE

Dustin Poirier is ready to stake his claim as one of the top featherweights in the UFC by taking out Jonathan Brookins in impressive fashion at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 16 Finale on Dec. 15, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"I'm going to go out there to finish Jonathan Brookins. It's not going to be a decision; it's going to be me getting my hand raised in the first or second round and showing the division that I'm here. In the [Jung] fight I didn't get run over. He was just on that night and I was just off. Sometimes that happens in fighting, and I learned a lot from it. I'm going to prove to myself and everyone [on Dec. 15] that I deserve to be at the top of the 145-pound division."

Things didn't go as planned for rising prospect Dustin Poirier in his last outing inside the Octagon, who was one win away from contending for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight title. Chan Sung Jung put an end to those plans as he defeated the "Diamond" in the fourth round with a very impressive D'arce choke at UFC on Fuel TV 2: "Korean Zombie vs. Poirier." Looking to bounce back, Dustin will now face Jonathan Brookins at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 16 Finale on Dec. 15, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Not content with squeezing out a decision victory, the newest member of American Top Team tells ESPN he is looking to regain his spot as one of the top contenders in the 145-pound division with a stoppage victory over the former TUF winner. Can the star of "Fightville" get it done?
