Dustin Poirier Finishes Justin Gaethje in Epic Main Event War at UFC on FOX 29
Just about everybody expected Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje to deliver a ‘Fight of the Night’ in their lightweight main event at UFC on FOX 29.
Despite those lofty expectations, they may have actually over delivered as Poirier earned a fourth round TKO to finish Gaethje in arguably one of the best fights in UFC history.
Still, Poirier was a relentless head hunter as his shots continuously snapped Gaethjes’s head backwards and before long he opened up a cut that started to bother the Arizona native.
For all the shots that Poirier landed, Gaethje began to swing the momentum in his favor in the third round when he connected with a big punch that left “The Diamond” on wobbly legs.
