UFC 236 results, highlights: Dustin Poirier batters Max Holloway to claim interim lightweight title



ATLANTA – Pushed to the limit in a hellacious five-round war with featherweight champion Max Holloway on Saturday, Dustin Poirier found an extra gear on the biggest stage of his career.

Finally fulfilling that had long made him a viable contender at 155 pounds, Poirier (25-5, 1 NC) claimed a unanimous decision (49-46, 49-46, 49-46) to capture the interim lightweight title in the main event of UFC 236 at State Farm Arena.

The fight was all the action, almost all the time and likely would have been praised for best of the year had not been for the instant classic in the co-main event between Israel Adesanya and Kelvin Gastelum for the interim title. But it was Poirier who landed the bigger shots throughout that brutalized Holloway's face in a rematch of their 201

2 bout won by Poirier via first-round submission.

"This feels amazing. I feel like I'm in a dream right now, "Poirier said. "You just beat the pound-for-pound best in the world. To be the best, you have to beat the best. Damn, I feel good. I've earned this with blood. Paid in full, this is mine."

Most of the blood poirier was covered in the fight, however, came from the face of Holloway who had a busted nose, cuts around both eyes and grotesque swelling from the accurate shots absorbed throughout.

"I'm Not going to take anything away from Dustin, "Holloway said. "He beat a world champion and is a world champion. There is no interim shit. He's a world champion. Congrats, brother."

In a already crowded and deep division, Poirier became the No. 1 contender for Khabib Nurmagomedov's lightweight title and called out the champion after the fight, referencing the suspension from a post-fight melee at UFC 229 last year that will leave Nurmagomedov out of action until July.

Daniel Cormier, get your s — together young man, we have a title to fight for, "Poirier said.

Holloway (20-3) showed tremendous heart and stamina to come forward at a relentless pace throughout. But his power at 155 pounds never seemed to bother when only moments of real trouble came when his attempts to finish Holloway left him briefly gassed out.

"He hit me with some big shots but I'm the f — ing champ, man, "Poirier said. "This is a piece of the world title. I'm the f — ing champ."

The 30-year-old Poirier floored Holloway late in a thrilling opening round in which Holloway later rallied as Poirier began to look winded. Holloway, 27, then controlled most of Round 2 until Poirier dropped him again late

Holloway had his moments with big flurries in the final two rounds but Poirier's power proved too much as Holloway's face began to fall apart.

" Nothing was different, I felt good, Holloway said. "I thought tonight was my night but it didn't go my way."
After the fight, Holloway remained noncommittal as to which division would campaign in moving forward.

"I'm still the champ," Holloway said. "Whatever weight [class] gets me closer to that pound-for-pound title, I'm here."
