Dustin Porier predicts what his fight against Jason Young on Saturday will be. Will he continue making his way up in the featherweight division?

Dustin Porier is one of UFC’s rising star in the featherweight division. For the last six months, he has proven this description to be true.

In what has to be a title match, Dustin Porier’s win over Josh Grispi was the most high-profile fight of his career.
