UFC Free Fight Video: Dustin Poirier vs. Benoit Saint Denis

By Vaseline May27,2024

Dustin Poirier returned to the winning circuit in a big way at UFC 299.

After a devastating loss to Justin Gaethje, Poirier was paired with white-hot lightweight prospect Benoit Saint Denis last March in Miami. Few would have been surprised if Saint Denis had passed the former interim champion en route to a title shot, but the more experienced Poirier refused to go down easily.

Watch Poirier’s thrilling clash with Saint Denis in the video above.

Saint Denis entered the match having finished off his last five opponents and he fearlessly took the fight to Poirier. “The Diamond” weathered the storm and outlasted Saint Denis before leaving the Frenchman cold with a series of knockout punches in round 2.

Next up for Poirier will be a third chance to become the undisputed UFC lightweight champion. He fights Islam Makhachev in the main event of UFC 302 on June 1 in Newark, NJ
