On Saturday night, Poirier called for a title shot after a fourth round finish to stop Justin Gaethje in the UFC on FOX 29 main event in what could ultimately be the best fight of all 2018.

Gaethje did return fire with an effective counter attack, however, as he began battering Poirier's lead leg with inside kicks.

Round Four: The round begins with Gaethje attacking Poirier with a two punch combination, Poirier rocks a swinging Gaethje with a counter left.

Poirier appeared willing to fight on despite the effect it had on his vision and argued with the cageside doctor and referee to continue.

With a burst of energy from the brief break in the action, Poirier came out light on his feet again and that's when he blasted Gaethje with another powerful punch. All things considered, he couldn't have made it harder for Poirier from the get-go, setting a frankly ridiculous pace as soon as the opening bell rang and for a time it did seem as though the pressure was getting to "The Diamond". The referee finally saw enough and stopped the contest at 33 seconds into the fourth round, as Poirier celebrated his victory. "He has no quit in him, and I respect that 100 percent". He held a 179-116 advantage in total strikes landed.

"Twenty 20 in the UFC, up and down weight classes", Poirier said.
