Poirier never really found his range. When he was finally able to get inside and strike around 90 seconds in, he missed with an uppercut and Johnson popped him with a pair of hooks that put him to sleep.
Johnson went over to the unconscious Poirier and taunted him after the fight. The pre-fight emotion certainly leaked into this one.
Afterwards, Michael Johnson called for that “McGregor and Diaz” money. He also wants to get on the NYC card in two months, but who is the right opponent for Johnson. An Edson Barboza rematch?
Barboza looked great in his last bout, but was beat by Johnson when they fought. Khabib Nurmagomedov still needs an opponent. However, a fight with Khabib is more of a punishment than anything.
