Dustin Poirier Shows Off Damage Done to His Leg in War with Justin Gaethje

April 16, 2018

Dustin Poirier earned a fourth round knockout to finish Justin Gaethje in the UFC on FOX 29 main event but he didn’t walk away without enduring some serious damage of his own.

During the course of the main event battle, Poirier ate 50 leg kicks from the former World Series of Fighting Champion as that became the focal point of his offensive attack throughout the fight.

The damage done was effective as Poirier was heard asking his corner to ice down the leg as much as possible between rounds and after the fight he was on crutches getting around the backstage area.

Ultimately, Poirier got the win, which is what matters most, but he showed off the after effects of those leg kicks with a set of photos released on Sunday.

Of course, Poirier isn’t the first fighter to endure that kind of punishment to the legs but he’ll likely deal with the discomfort considering he got the knockout and an extra $50,000 bonus for his part in ‘Fight of the Night’.
