The UFC on Fox 29 headliner may very well take its toll on Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje down the road, but it will boost their bank accounts in the more immediate future. He also knew that if he finished Gaethje in impressive fashion that he would deserve a crack at new UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. After the battle, Poirier spoke with the UFC's Megan Olivi, and while doing so, he reported that he may have broken his hand, and that his knee feels unstable.
I wish he would have done a little more work to Gaethje 's body, but he was really landing some shots and Gaethje was wearing it on the face the entire fight.
"This is my 20th fight in the UFC", Poirier said in the Octagon after the fight.
Poirier improved to 7-1 with one no contest since his 2014 TKO loss to former two-division champion Conor McGregor.
First, it was his stunning comeback victory win over Michael Johnson, next, it was his violent brawl with Eddie Alvarez and yesterday, he managed to maintain his own ridiculous standard with a heroic but ultimately unsuccessful clash with Dustin Poirier. "I would never stand here and ask for something I didn't earn". He even seemed to have Poirier almost defeated in the third round off a big left, but an eye poke from Gaethje that resulted in a point deduction gave Poirer time to recover. The No. 6-ranked Gaethje falls to 18-2.
But in the fourth, Poirier rocked Gaethje with a left hand and as he followed up with a flurry of punches, referee Herb Dean called a halt to proceedings. Poirier, however, found the crack in Gaethje's armor early in the fourth round, rocking him with a brutal punch, and then following up with an onslaught that he couldn't answer. Being a fighter myself I really don't understand what the problem is with all these fighters that continue to take poke their opponents in the eyes. He survived and won with a big left hand, moving a step closer to his title shot.

Bournemouth , who did not test the Liverpool goalkeeper Lorus Karius until Andrew Surman's late shot, remain 11th on 38 points. Jordan Henderson, who missed the game through suspension, replaced James Milner - but apart from that it was the same XI.
