    For the real star of last night. Dustin Poirier.

    While everyone is talking about Gaethje’s toughness. Let’s not lose focus on the man who won the damn war. What a fucking warrior. Absorbed big shots himself while landing beautiful combinations (that would have ended most lightweights a lot earlier), kept up a ridiculous output for three rounds and then when it looked like Gaethje’s strategy of letting him gas himself, might be working, Poirier dug even deeper and fucking finished him.

    Give this man his rematch against Conor!

    Well, yeah . Re-match with McG is a good idea .
    Conor will probably insist on fighting Brock Lesnar
    for $250,000,000 though ;)

    Have to give him big credit. He took a ton of brutal leg kicks and was tired, but reached down deep and found a finish. Poirier is an A-level fight for sure.

    Props to both fighters.

    I'm hating all these UG-esque thread titles that don't clearly state the thread topic though. They are becoming too common, imo.

    Dustin fought through adversity and looked great. Typical early stoppage from Herb, but Kudos to him for fighting through those leg kicks. Both guys are warriors.

    I thought the stoppage was good. While Herb restrained Dustin, JG was humping Herb's leg, thinking the fight was still going. He didn't realize it was the clothed leg of a huge black man and not the naked leg of a little white man that he was grabbing. To me, that means he was not capable of defending himself intelligently.

    Great fight and I was worried that he wasn't gonna make it to the end.

    But come on. A rematch with Conor is the last thing this guy needs.

    Agreed. Getting punched in the head is not an intelligent defense. Dustin was keeping his distance, feinting on the way in...no way JG was going to grab on to Dustin and survive. Nothing left in that round but fists to the dome.
