Poirier Defeats Hooker in UFC Fight of the Year Candidate

0

In an epic main event on UFC Fight Night we quite possibly saw the fight of the year between Dustin Diamond Poirier and Dan Hangman Hooker. These two men beat the hell out of each other in a fight that came down to the very last round.

During the first four rounds Hooker was moving his punches and jabs with kicks and knees to the body. On the other hand, Poirier was throwing power shots to the head and kicks to the legs but also going for submissions.

As the fight moved to the later rounds Dustin seemed to step his game up throwing more punches then Hooker. And while both fighters were bloody Poirier was able to come back from behind to equal the card up to 2 rounds a piece.

In round five, the deciding round of this fight, Poirier seemed to have more juice in the tank and was throwing haymakers all while taking Hooker down and forcing him to stay in defense the last 30 seconds of the fight. Poirier’s energy in round five helped him secure the win in this fight. The judges rewarded Dustin Diamond Poirier with a 48-47, 48-47, and 48-46 scorecard win.

Just an amazing fight and a Fight of the Year candidate.

Poirier in the post fight interview seemed so happy to be back fighting after a 9 month hiatus due to medical injuries. He said that he loved this sport and as long as he didn’t hate doing it he was going to keep doing what he does best and that’s putting on a show.

If you missed this fight you must watch it and if you did watch it I recommend watching this fight again and appreciate what these guys just did. Because they might of been talking shit before the fight but afterward it was a different story. These two warriors had a nice moment after the fight exchanging positive feedback to each other.
