The best and worst from UFC on Fox 29

Video Watch UFC on FOX 29's post-event press conference on MMAjunkie

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.

UFC President Dana White agrees that Dustin Poirier is a serious option for Khabib Nurmagomedov's next opponent.

The 29-year-old Gaethje has staged three instant classics in as many walks to the Octagon, but suffered his second straight defeat by knockout in his return to Gila River Arena, where he claimed two state high school wrestling titles over a decade ago.

Repeated eye pokes from Gaethje gave Poirier much-needed respite and preserved his lead on the cards, as referee Herb Dean briefly halted the action to dock Gaethje a point for the transgressions.

Who do you think should get the next shot at "The Eagle's" shiny new belt?

"I've been knocked out, climbed back, over and over again". "I will be known and remembered as one of the most entertaining fighters that ever did it". We would sleep in broken-down motels and fight the next day, just me and her. "This is entertainment business and I fight for money". "I was training, I knew I could be called at short notice".

Gaethje earned the nickname "The Highlight" for his hyper aggressive style, but Poirier took the fight to him. Poirier attacked primarily with punches to the head, while Gaethje chose to brutalize his adversary's legs. Late in the round, Poirier saw a couple takedown attempts come up empty, and it was Gaethje missing, but thrilling the crowd, with a flip at his foe. I felt so comfortable in there and so good, the best I've ever felt.

"I want to fight for gold, man", Poirier said to MMA Fighting. "I'm not chasing rematches with Conor, rematches with Eddie, rematches with anybody".

Poirier was still ahead on all three cards and left no doubt in the fourth round, stunning Gaethje with the left hand and burying him in a flurry of punches until Dean stepped in to stop it. Hot prospect Israel Adesanya continued to show promise but couldn't finish his fight against Marvin Vettori.
