Justin Gaethje Promises Five More Unmissable Fights In His MMA Career

He also knew that if he finished Gaethje in impressive fashion that he would deserve a crack at new UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Poirier scored the fourth-round knockout, putting him on the precipice of a title shot, but both men were awarded for their efforts, each receiving a $50,000 bonus for being awarded the Fight of the Night honor.

Newzealand Bans New Offshore Drilling, Citing Climate Change
New Zealand exports about $1.1 billion worth of oil per year, less than it imports, according to The New York Times. In its announcement however, the government said it wanted to be clear no current jobs would be affected.

"The Diamond" has been a part of the UFC roster for over 7 years and he believes that it is finally his chance to secure a title shot.

First, it was his stunning comeback victory win over Michael Johnson, next, it was his violent brawl with Eddie Alvarez and yesterday, he managed to maintain his own ridiculous standard with a heroic but ultimately unsuccessful clash with Dustin Poirier. I've shown resilience and fortitude and I've done it over and over again to put myself back in the position I'm in, and I'm hitting my stride as a father, a fighter, a husband and a person. With a little over three minutes left, Gaethje stunned Poirier with a punch upstairs, and as the fight went to the fence, Gaethje went on the attack.

Major Ice Storm Could Hit Mississauga This Weekend
The freezing rain should be brief but may persist for a couple of hours in the north and higher terrain areas. The national weather agency added that driving conditions could also be "hazardous" in some areas.

Poirier knew his fight with Justin Gaethje would be like this. He even seemed to have Poirier almost defeated in the third round off a big left, but an eye poke from Gaethje that resulted in a point deduction gave Poirer time to recover. Before this I said I've got six. The first thing that Gaethje throws is a leg kick, and Poirier countered with a straight left, as he had been trying to do the entire fight. I'm ready to go, and gold is next. "I was training, I knew I could be called at short notice". And while Poirier landed several hard combinations, Gaethje walked through the punches and continued to batter the Louisiana native's right leg. Each fighter earned a $50,000 Dollars bonus. Coming off two losses, that's hard to say, but you want to see me fight. "I smell it. I feel it in the air".

Poirier added: "This guy [Gaethje] would have died in here if Herb Dean hadn't stopped it".

What we know so far about the strikes on Syria
Russia's ambassador to the United States said Moscow had warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences". The Pentagon claims the overnight strikes "significantly crippled Assad's ability to produce chemical weapons".
