“If you’re talking about game plan, what I want is for both of us to be dripping blood and hurting and suffering early in the fight, then we can find out who’s the real fighter,” Poirier told comedian Theo Von in the latter’s This Past Weekend podcast (transcript by BJPenn.com). “That’s what I want. I want to be bleeding with a minute off the first round clock.”

“I want us both to be bleeding and really have to dig down and see who’s the better fighter, and see who really wants to be in there,” he said. “Because I don’t have a safety net. I want to be in there, and I know that. I know that, and I’d like to find out if he does.”
