Ferreira anticipates Poirier's circle and lands a clubbing right. Poirier doubles up on stiff right hands before rolling out of Ferreira's sneaky arm-drag trip attempt. Ferreira puts Poirier on the fence but can't make hay and Poirier circles off and separates. Poirier lands a sharp combo and then they both throw and land mutual salvos. Poirier scores with a left and we pause briefly for a Ferreira kick that lands low. Poirier with a quick left. Ferreira throws decoy punches and clinches up but Poirier again circles off and breaks free.
Another short left lands for Poirier as Ferreira's coming in, then he sits him down with another. Ferreira scrambles back to his feet but ends up pulling Poirier on top of him after a sloppy takedown. Poirier wisely lets him back up and coolly showers Ferreira with another violent outburst of rights and lefts. A demonstrative jack-hammer during Poirier's finishing sequence inspires the ref to call it off.
