By FCF Staff
Dustin Poirier had a big night at the TUF Nations Finale in Quebec City, as the featherweight recorded his third straight win by stopping Akira Corassani, and earned an extra $50K in doing so.
Poirier and Corassani earned “Fight of the Night” honors for their entertaining battle, which saw Poirier finish the fight in round two with a flurry of strikes. When round one came to a conclusion, Poirier was attempting to end the bout with a Peruvian Necktie submission.
“Performance of the Night” awards, and an extra $50,000, went to Ryan Jimmo and KJ Noons.
Jimmo stopped light-heavyweight Sean O’Connell late in round one with a series of punches, and Noons took out Sam Stout with strikes just moments into their welterweight bout.
