Follow all the action from UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Johnson

BY Jonathan Bradley • November 15, 2016

The UFC hits Texas for the first time this year as top-10 lightweights Dustin Poirier and Michael Johnson headline UFC Fight Night from Hidalgo.

Poirier enters the matchup riding a four-fight win streak and has finished three of those fights since moving up to lightweight from featherweight. Johnson was on the cusp of the lightweight top five before suffering back-to-back setback, including a loss to Nate Diaz. Both understand that a win on Saturday will help them gain better traction in the crowded 155-pound rankings.

In the co-main event, Ultimate Fighter finalist Uriah Hall battles streaking middleweight Derek Brunson while 15th-ranked lightweight Evan Dunham takes on former WSOF featherweight champion and UFC newcomer Rick Glenn.

The action gets underway on FS2 at 8PM/5PM ETPT before moving over to FS1 for the main card at 10PM/7PM, also on FS1. Keep it here for blow-by-blow coverage of the event and stick around afterwards for news, results and analysis.
