UFC 257 is in the books, and it saw two great performances that shook up the lightweight division. Dustin Poirier rematched Conor McGregor and he showed that we aren’t in 2014 anymore. After a patient first round, his leg kicks took effect and he eventually stopped the Irishman in the second round.

In the co-main event, Michael Chandler shined on his UFC debut. The former Bellator champion quickly knocked out Dan Hooker and instantly established himself as a top contender at 155 lbs.

Also putting in good wins on the event were Marina Rodriguez and Joanne Calderwood, who likely cementer her flyweight title shot.

Here’s a quick twitter thread with a brief recap and analysis of the event, that’s fitting for people’s social media era attention spans:
