Next weekend Dustin Poirier enters the cage for the 35th time. Of his previous bouts, the Louisianan has won 27 of them with 20 of those bouts coming via stoppage.
The vast majority of ‘Diamond’’s competition has come inside the storied UFC Octagon. He joined the UFC, via the WEC talent pipeline, in 2011. Since then he has built a reputation for exciting—and violent—contests.
His path, filled with brawls and KOs, lead him to a UFC lightweight title bout in 2019. However, he would fall short of claiming that UFC gold due to a third round submission at the hands of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Most recently, Poirier earned a second round TKO victory over Conor McGregor, the man he will meet in the cage next Saturday at UFC 264. That win over McGregor, his 13th career KO/TKO, was revenge for McGregor’s TKO win over him all the way back in 2014.
As we get ready for Poirier vs. McGregor 3, a bout that should seal a victor in their trilogy rivalry, we can watch all of Poirier’s stoppage wins in the UFC.
