Poirier stops Gaethje in 4th; UFC on FOX 29 full results & video highlights

UFC on FOX 29 took place Saturday in Glendale, Ariz. The main event saw No. 5 ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier overcome repeated eye pokes and brutal leg kicks of Justin Gaethje to earn a TKO win early in the fourth round. Gaethje chopped at Poirier’s legs until he could barely stand, but Poirier’s punching power remained in tact and he connected big in the fourth to hand the former WSOF champ his second straight loss.

Even on short notice, Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira proved to be too much for the aging “Natural Born Killer” Carlos Condit in the co-main event and got the submission victory via guillotine choke in round two. Also, in a women’s featured srawweight attraction Michelle Waterson used her mobility, striking prowess and takedowns to secure a split decision nod over the very strong and dangerous Cortney “Cast Iron” Casey.
