UFC featherweight Dustin Poirier suffered his first loss in the Octagon earlier this year, falling to Chan Sung Jung in a surprisingly one-sided affair. The 23-year old will look to erase any lingering aftertaste from the defeat this December 15 when he faces Jonathan Brookins at the Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.
The match-up has been confirmed by UFC officials.
Poirier, who had a five-fight winning streak snapped with the loss to Jung, holds an overall record of 12-2 including past success against the likes of Pablo Garza, Zach Micklewright, and Josh Grispi.
