UFC 257 post-event facts: Dustin Poirier’s resume proves he’s an all-time great

The UFC’s first pay-per-view of the year was one to remember. UFC 257 took place Saturday at Etihad Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi and saw two of the most decorated fighters in company history rematch in the main event.

After losing the first meeting back in 2014, Dustin Poirier (27-6 MMA, 19-5 UFC) rose to the occasion in his rematch with Conor McGregor (22-5 MMA, 10-3 UFC), becoming the first in MMA to stop the Irishman with strikes when he scored a second-round TKO in the lightweight headliner.

The win elevated Poirier’s already impressive resume to a new level. For more on the numbers for “The Diamond,” as well as the rest of the card, check below.
