Dana White Reacts To Dustin Poirier's Khabib Nurmagomedov Callout

MMA DFS Playbook UFC on Fox 29- Poirier vs. Gaethje

We got some hot finishes up and down the card, with a handful of fighters making massive steps forward and a few others facing somewhat of a stumble.

MMA fans everywhere have a reason to be thankful White did not tab Poirier as a last-minute replacement to face Khabib last week, but you would also have to think the UFC would not pass on the opportunity to cash in on what would legitimately be one of - if not the - biggest fights in UFC history between Khabib and McGregor. Will be updated.Dustin Poirier stunned Justin Gaethje with a hard left hand and won by a fourth-round technical knockout in a UFC lightweight fight.

"As I thought about the possibilities this fight could take, I knew I would have to dig down deep, I knew trouble would present itself", Poirier said.

Gaethje, a modern-day barbarian who is nearly impervious to pain, seemed unfazed by a cut above his left eye in Round 1 and continued to chip away at Poirier's right leg with a steady stream of damaging kicks.

Poirier wisely refused to let Gaethje draw him into a brawl, his volume putting him ahead on the scorecards heading into the third.

Daniel Ricciardo's quali close shave was 'really close'
Behind him, Renault's Nico Hulkenberg drove a solid race for sixth, ahead of Alonso and an angry Vettel. The German locked a wheel going into the hairpin on lap 43 and ran a little wide.

As Gaethje opened Round 4 with another leg kick, Poirier countered with a beautifully timed left straight that put him on skates, then unloaded a typhoon of strikes that sent him to the canvas and prompted Dean to wave it all off 33 seconds in.

"This guy would've died in here if Herb Dean didn't stop it", Poirier said. "He has no quit in him, and I respect that 100 percent". The former World Series of Fighting champion was stopped by Eddie Alvarez last December.

What remains unsure, however, is whether Poirier will get his wish for an instant title shot.

While it may sound like a far-away possibility with Nurmagomedov seemingly headed for a vast grudge match with former champ Conor McGregor, UFC President Dana White was understandably complimentary of "The Diamond" when discussing the insane match-up at UFC on FOX 29 with Megan Olivi during the post-fight show on FOX Sports 2.
