Check out the highlights from Dustin Poirier’s championship victory over Max Holloway at UFC 236: Holloway vs. Poirier 2 in Atlanta. Poirier and Holloway fought an all-out war for five rounds in an early candidate for Fight of the Year, but it was Poirier that did the damage both early and late in the fight to lay claim to the interim UFC lightweight title. He’ll next step into the cage opposite undefeated champion Khabib Nurmagomedov later this year.


Following UFC 236 in Atlanta, the Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Russia for UFC on ESPN+ 7 in St. Petersburg. The event is highlighted by a heavyweight match-up between Alistair Overeem and Ukranian-born Russian Alexey Oleynik on Saturday, April 20.
