Poirier stops Gaethje in 4th round of absolute barn burner

UFC On FOX Results: Dustin Poirier Knocks Out Justin Gaethje In A Wild Back-And-Forth War

BC-MMA-UFC-Poirier-Gaethje, 119 Poirier beats Gaethje by TKO in UFC lightweight fightEds: APNewsNow. Dustin Poirier stunned Justin Gaethje with a hard left hand and won by a fourth-round technical knockout in a UFC lightweight fight.

Gaethje, a modern-day barbarian who is nearly impervious to pain, seemed unfazed by a cut above his left eye in Round 1 and continued to chip away at Poirier's right leg with a steady stream of damaging kicks.

Dustin Poirier vowed to finesse Justin Gaethje, and finesse him he did. My goal is to prosper and be a world champion and make money and retire and say, 'I did it'. He was forced to walk through hell in order to get there in a fight that was contested on Gaethje's terms when it comes to pace and distance.

Led airstrikes have limited effect on deterring Syrian gov't
President Trump thanked the United Kingdom and France for their "wisdom and power", saying the strike could not have "had a better result".

"I've paid my dues", Poirier said. "I was training, I knew I could be called at short notice". I'm ready to go, and gold is next. But, in terms of the championship implications of Poirier's win, what's the take away here? Poirier hit Gaethje with a couple of combinations, bloodying the left side of his face midway through the first round while dodging most of Gaethje's counter attempts. As round three came to an end, it looked like all the leg kicks Gaethje had landed had paved the way to a win, but Poirier proceeded to stop the former WSOF champ in round four. But the momentum appeared to change late in the round when Gaethje, who was warned one round earlier, was deducted a point by referee Herb Dean for poking Poirier in the eye. "I smell it. I feel it in the air".

Poirier added: "This guy [Gaethje] would have died in here if Herb Dean hadn't stopped it".
