Dustin Poirier: 'It's Time' for a UFC Title Shot

Share

"I've never been anxious about winning and losing".

Poirier improved to 7-1 with one no contest since his 2014 TKO loss to former two-division champion Conor McGregor. [UFC president] Dana [White], [matchmaker] Sean [Shelby], Khabib - let's f--ing go! The advantage shifted between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje over four rounds until Poirier stunned Gaethje with a left hand to set up a strong finish, and the effort put in by both fighters will earn each of them a $50,000 bonus.

Gaethje (18-2), from Safford, Arizona, had the crowd support and landed a series of punches in the second round after a shaky first.

Philadelphia Eagles Cornerback Daryl Worley Arrested This Morning
Per reports, Worley was tasered after he became "combative" with Philadelphia police and was arrested around 6 AM Sunday morning. The Eagles said in a statement: 'We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley's arrest this morning'.

But in the fourth, Poirier rocked Gaethje with a left hand and as he followed up with a flurry of punches, referee Herb Dean called a halt to proceedings.

As Gaethje stumbled around the cage, Poirier swarmed in to tag him with combinations before finishing him along the cage wall.

Dustin Poirier's boxing looked super crisp in this fight. Dean jumped in at 33 seconds after Gaethje collapsed to the ground. "He has no quit in him, and I respect that 100 percent". I want the biggest fights possible. In the third round I really thought Gaethje had a chance to win the fight with leg kicks but he really didn't get on top of Poirier to much.

The team stuck by the ball-sharing that won them games all season. "On home court, we're supposed to win, and that's our mindset". This season officially started at the year-end press conference after the second-round sweep to the Cleveland Cavaliers .

Nurmagomedov, who won the vacant title at UFC 223 earlier this month by defeating Al Iaquinta, isn't expected to fight again until August or September at the earliest.

Poirier, though, is a man whose own penchant for action could well rival anyone's and sure enough, when push came to shove, he was able to handle the heat and record a huge win for his title aspirations. Being a fighter myself I really don't understand what the problem is with all these fighters that continue to take poke their opponents in the eyes. The former featherweight contender feels reborn in his return to 155 pounds and has added plenty of poise and polish to his exciting style.
