Dustin Poirier (23-5-0) overcame a spirited effort from hometown hero Justin Gaethje (18-2-0) en route to an exciting fourth round TKO victory in the main event of UFC on FOX 29 last night in Glendale, Arizona.

With back-to-back finishes of Justin Gaethje and Anthony Pettis, there is no better time than now for Dustin Poirier to ask for a shot at lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. "I will be known and remembered as one of the most entertaining fighters that ever did it".

The 30-year-old Brazilian earned the biggest win of his career in the desert on two weeks' notice, forcing the former interim welterweight champ to submit with a second-round guillotine choke hold in a fight that bloodied both fighters. In his last nine fights, Poirier is 7-1 with a no-contest vs. Eddie Alvarez. "I would never stand here and ask for something I didn't earn".

Poirier suffered more pain in the third round when Gaethje was docked a point for an accidental eye poke, which required the attention of the ringside doctor. The decision turned out to be a smart one as Poirier quickly rocked Gaethje to open Round 4 with a stiff counter left hand.

Poirier was still ahead on all three cards and left no doubt in the fourth round, stunning Gaethje with the left hand and burying him in a flurry of punches until Dean stepped in to stop it.

Mourinho Blames Man United's Players For West Brom Defeat
United gifting City the title by losing to West Brom came just a week on from them delaying their rivals' celebrations. Previous times, we almost threw it away and that was a feature of every season we won it.


Dustin Poirier's boxing looked super crisp in this fight. The only thing I'm scared of, is not performing, and not putting on an entertaining fight.

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.

There were several dream fights for him to take part in and he has done just that.

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.
