MMA: UFC Fight Night-Poirier vs Johnson Sean Porkorny-USA TODAY Sports

Dustin Poirier looked to extend his perfect record at Lightweight against Michael Johnson, who was looking to snap a two fight losing streak.

Johnson began the fight with fast hands, cutting Poirier open above the eyebrow. Johnson landed a huge right hand followed by a left to the temple that sent Poirier crashing to the mat. He followed up with brutal ground and pound until the ref stepped in. What huge KO for Johnson! Johnson went back to Poirier and taunted him as Poirier laid on the canvas.
