Fancy Dustin to TKO Conor again, I'll say round three but can see it even earlier. First time Conor was ever stopped by strikes in their second fight.

So going by the first two fights, whoever has the longer hair when they go into the cage should be a shoe-in.

Check those wins out by Dustin Poirier!

Somewhat insane to me he gets paid more for this fight than fighting for an actual title. 

I think some points about fighter pay are definitely debatable but this makes no sense to me, along with these garbage, pointless interim title fights.

What a great fight! I love two dudes who are too stubborn to quit.  Akmedov will be spending the next few days standing in barrels full of ice.

Tavares started off slow but came on strong in the later rounds and found his range.. The win for Tavares was the right call.
