These Guys Are Made Of Cornstarch and Tears

This weekend at ufc 264, the main event saw Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor fight for the Lightweight Championship of the World.

What an incredible fight!

The first round belonged to McGregor, who landed a series of powerful punches that left Poirier reeling. Poirier came back strong in the second round with a body kick and some lethal jabs. The third round was another slow one for Poirier, who couldn’t seem to get his footing against the cagey Irishman.

McGregor took the fourth round on points with a strong leg kick and some impressive wrestling moves. It looked like he might take the fifth as well, but then it happened: Poirier landed a hard left hook that sent McGregor to the ground. He tried to get up, but Poirier had him in a choke hold and that was it. In just 4 minutes, 49 seconds, “The Notorious” One was defeated.

The main event at ufc 264 ended in a disqualification when Max Holloway delivered a series of illegal strikes to the back of Charles Oliveira’s head, earning him a red card and Oliveira the win.

In the first round, Holloway started off hot, throwing many punches and kicks. He was able to connect with Oliveira and open up his guard early on in the fight. Then, as the round went on, Oliveira began to find his rhythm and land some punches of his own. The round ended with both fighters landing some good strikes, with neither seeming to get the upper hand.

In the second round, Holloway continued his aggressive style and was able to land some good strikes on Oliveira again. But Oliveira was able to block them all and counter with some body shots that connected well. By the end of this round, it seemed as though Oliveira had gotten used to fighting against Holloway’s pace and was ready to take him down in the third round.

In the third round, both fighters came out swinging again but Oliveira landed more punches than his opponent did. This time around though, Holloway didn’t seem affected by these strikes as much as he had before because he had gotten used to fighting against this type of

In that one-minute span, he landed two vicious elbows, two punches and a kick. McGregor was finished.

“I thought it was going to be a war,” Poirier said. “He’s a warrior. But I’m the real deal, man.”

No longer is Poirier merely the guy who lost to McGregor four years ago in a first-round knockout. He’s the new king of the lightweight division, and his victory happened in such an emphatic manner that it has everyone wondering whether McGregor will ever fight again.

“This is a young man’s game,” McGregor said. “It’s not my time anymore.”

But his time hasn’t passed yet, either. McGregor still believes he can win a world title, and he hinted that he will continue to fight for at least another year or two before retiring from UFC competition for good.

“I have the skill set to beat these guys,” he said. “I just need to brush up on certain areas of my skill set and get back in there.”
