Poirier vs. Holloway Wiki Update Wiki

The sixth bout of UFC 143 featured Max Holloway taking on Dustin Poirier in the featherweight division.


Holloway looked comfortable standing early and backed Poirier down with some flashy attacks. Poirier decided to transition to takedown attempts, connecting on his second as he lifted up and slammed Holloway to the ground. Poirier immediately moved to full mount and prevented Holloway from pressing off the fence and rolling over. Poirier attacked for an armbar, transitioned quickly to a triangle choke, and with Holloway mounted stuck in a triangle, Poirier worked the armbar again badly hyper-extending the arm and forcing a desperate submission from Holloway.


The official end came at 3:23 for the submission victory for Poirier. Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Poirier commented, "I'm happy, I came here to get a win and I finished the fight... I train hard and I don't cut corners, I'm here to be a champion... he's tough, he's a great kickboxer, a lot of people didn't know him but I trained hard for him and don't mess around in training."
