Opening up the main card of UFC 199 is Dustin Poirier and Bobby Green, two guys with some serious ass-kicking skills. The question mark hanging over Green though is his 18-month layoff for a torn ACL and if and how it will affect him.
Poirier takes position about two and a half feet away from Green and starts boxing the hell out of him. Green responds by talking at him with his hands down, so Poirier cracks him and rocks him, sending him to the canvas. The finish via TKO very nearly comes there, but Green recovers enough to regain his feet and talk more smack with his hands down. Surprise! Poirier nails him again with a left hook, and this time Green doesn’t recover, prompting the ref to jump in.
Result: Dustin Poirier def. Bobby Green via KO (Punches) at 2:53, R1
