UFC on FOX 29 breakdown Betting advice possible prop bets and fantasy studs

Win, lose or draw, nothing seems to matter more to UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje than putting on an unforgettable show for his supporters and last night in his headlining matchup with Dustin Poirier, he sure did not disappoint.

In 2016, Poirier suffered a knockout loss to Michael Johnson.

"As I thought about the possibilities this fight could take, I knew I would have to dig down deep, I knew trouble would present itself", Poirier said. "I would never stand here and ask for something I didn't earn". Dana (White), Sean (Shelby), Khabib; let's (expletive) go.

As Gaethje opened Round 4 with another leg kick, Poirier countered with a beautifully timed left straight that put him on skates, then unloaded a typhoon of strikes that sent him to the canvas and prompted Dean to wave it all off 33 seconds in. "I just stayed tough and believed in myself, got it done". Gaethje also appeared to have Poirier fading after Round 2 by absorbing every combination his opponent could throw without taking a step backward.

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.

"This guy would've died in here if Herb Dean didn't stop it", Poirier said.

Now, when you consider the current title shot picture in the lightweight division, and that it includes names like Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor, one might think Poirier's further down the list.

Nurmagomedov, who won the title last week with a victory over Al Iaquinta, took note of the performance of both fighters via Twitter, posting "It was a great fight, congratulations both".

Will he get a title shot from this win? The former featherweight contender feels reborn in his return to 155 pounds and has added plenty of poise and polish to his exciting style.
