Dustin Poirier and Anthony Pettis brought the action and a ton of blood tonight in the UFC Norfolk main event. After two excellent, back-and-forth rounds, Poirier was able to get a blood-soaked Pettis to the ground and secure a body triangle. While he was trying to transition to mount, Pettis seemed to get injured and tapped right away. It was an underwhelming ending to a very good fight, but at least we got two and a half rounds of fun fighting.
