Dustin Poirier confesses to growing obsession with jumping guillotines in UFC fights

Dustin Poirier recently confessed to the growing obsession with the jumping guillotine, which he had attempted a number of times during his bout against Benoit Saint Denis at UFC 299 this past Saturday.

Since the bout, the submission maneuver has taken a life of its own on social media, with the former interim lightweight champion also joining in on the fun by sharing a meme that shows him more interested in attempting the submission rather than sticking to his game plan.

During his recent appearance on The MMA Hour, Dustin Poirier mentioned that the jumping guillotine could be something he attempts against Islam Makhachev should he earn a title shot. He said:

“I’ll never stop jumping guillotines either. He [Benoit Saint Denis] never took me down, I took myself down. I was like five times…Yeah [it’s something I have to hit]. Maybe I’ll submit Islam [Makhachev] with it…[The obsession started] probably a few years ago. Dude, don’t be silly, jump the guilly, that’s the motto.”

It will be interesting to see whether Dustin Poirier could submit an elite grappler like Makhachev should he earn the next title shot, as he made a strong case with his win at UFC 299.
