The best and worst from UFC on Fox 29

UFC on FOX 29 play-by-play and live results

Poirier went toe-to-toe with Justin Gaethje for three rounds straight before knocking out Gaethje early in the fourth round, making a statement to the rest of the lightweight division. Dana (White), Sean (Shelby), Khabib; let's (expletive) go.

We got some hot finishes up and down the card, with a handful of fighters making massive steps forward and a few others facing somewhat of a stumble.

Poirier suffered more pain in the third round when Gaethje was docked a point for an accidental eye poke, which required the attention of the ringside doctor. But the momentum appeared to change late in the round when Gaethje, who was warned one round earlier, was deducted a point by referee Herb Dean for poking Poirier in the eye. Poirier was able to buy some time, though, and he made it back to the center of the Octagon, where he was able to score with more hard shots.

Gaethje (18-2), from Safford, Arizona, had the crowd support and landed a series of punches in the second round after a shaky first.

Barclay Dahlstrom, an instructor at the university, described her as a "bright student with a wonderful time and a kind heart". Two remain in critical condition. "We were the first ones there and the last ones to leave", he said.

Dustin Poirier vowed to finesse Justin Gaethje, and finesse him he did. The decision turned out to be a smart one as Poirier quickly rocked Gaethje to open Round 4 with a stiff counter left hand. Dean jumped in at 33 seconds after Gaethje collapsed to the ground.

"The Diamond" has been a part of the UFC roster for over 7 years and he believes that it is finally his chance to secure a title shot. "He has no quit in him, and I respect that 100 percent". Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier met at UFC 211 back in May, but the bout ended as a no contest and was filled with controversy.

Gaethje targeted Poirier's legs with kicks from the opening bell and the strategy appeared to be paying off as it took its toll on his mobility.

"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. The former featherweight contender feels reborn in his return to 155 pounds and has added plenty of poise and polish to his exciting style.
