Dustin Poirier extended his winning streak to four on Saturday night in Anaheim, California after he sunk in a D'Arce choke on his opponent, Pablo Garza, at the 1:32 mark of the second round.

Poirier dominated the first frame with efficient striking from distance. He caught Garza's leg in multiple instances, opening him up to strikes and leaving him helpless to Poirier's brutality. 

The second round was similar in that Poirier dominated the action early, but instead of working over Garza from range -- he took down Garza early and pummeled him from top position. When Garza postured up to escape, Poirier slid his arm under the chin and sunk in a D'Arce choke, ending Garza's night in an instant.

Poirier shocked fans in January at UFC 125 when he dismantled highly-touted prospect Josh Grispi over the course of fifteen minutes to take home an unanimous decision victory. He followed up the performance with another decision win, this time against British bruiser Jason Young, at UFC 131 in June.

Garza, who appeared on the twelfth season of The Ultimate Fighter, entered tonight's contest riding a two-fight win streak. He knocked out Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Fredson Paixao at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale in December, and he followed up that performance with an impressive flying triangle submission of Yves Jabouin at UFC 129 in April.
