Dustin Poirier TKO's Justin Gaethje In Thrilling Back-And-Forth Brawl

Share

Despite still being relatively young at 29 years old, Dustin Poirier has been in the UFC for a long time - debuting in 2012, six years ago.

His initial win streak of 4 fights - which included a win over Max Holloway - was stopped by Chan Sung Jung, and two subsequent winning streaks were snapped by Conor McGregor and Michael Johnson.

It never really seemed likely that last night's lightweight clash between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje was going to disappoint but those in attendance at UFC Glendale last night were treated to an all-out war as two of the division's finest scrapped hard over four rounds.

He said it was the party high command which sent them to Kathua to control the situation. Her body was found dumped in a forest near Rasana village seven days later.

The insane action continued into Round 3 when a counter right hand staggered Poirier against the fence. With his legs chewed up by Gaethje's most valuable weapon, Poirier began shooting for takedowns, but the ex-WSOF champ shucked off every one of his attempts, kept walking Poirier down, and momentarily rocked him with a right hand.

Poirier appeared willing to fight on despite the effect it had on his vision and argued with the cageside doctor and referee to continue. Poirier gets defensive and he swings away at an approaching Gaethje, Gaethje gets Poirier against the cage wall while landing knee strikes.

"This guy would've died in here if Herb Dean didn't stop it", Poirier said. "He has no quit in him, and I respect that 100 percent".

It said earlier that the attacks targeted a scientific research centre in Barzeh, near Damascus , and an army depot near Homs. Syrian air defenses shot down 13 missiles fired in the US -led attack on the country on Saturday, Syrian state TV said.

Gaethje, 29, who has firmly established a reputation in three UFC fights for providing entertainment, also suffered his second straight defeat via violent knockout.

The good news for Poirier is that White was suitably impressed with his performance last night and does see him as one of the potential title contenders at 155lbs. In his last nine fights, Poirier is 7-1 with a no-contest vs. Eddie Alvarez.
