UFC on FOX 29: Dustin Poirier Stops Justin Gaethje in Thrilling Bout
By FCF Staff
Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje lived up to the hype that surrounded their bout tonight at UFC on FOX 29, as the lightweights went to war for over 15 minutes, before Poirier won the bout.
Gaethje came out firing his patented legkicks, while Poirier returned fire with punches that cut the former WSOF champ early on. In the middle rounds, Gaethje poked Poirier in the left eye twice, and as a result, he was deducted a point.
In round four, despite the fact Poirier’s right leg was visibly bothering him, he proceeded to stop Gaethje with strikes.
Here are the results from UFC on FOX 29, which took place in Glendale, Arizona.
