Dustin Poirier and Michael Johnson would be in very different places in their careers if they had just defeated Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, respectively. But alas, they didn’t, and here we are.

Johnson comes out testing his luck with a front kick, and both men flurry, but the shocking conclusion comes when a Johnson combo penetrates Poirier’s defenses and Poirier drops like a sack of potatoes. Subsequent punches have the ref jumping in.
