UFC 242 Free Fight Featuring Dustin Poirier Vs. Max Holloway

Dustin Poirier kept Max Holloway from becoming a two-division champion, claiming the interim lightweight title earlier this year.

Max Holloway wanted to join exclusive company when he challenged for the interim UFC lightweight title earlier this year.

But Dustin Poirier had other ideas.

Poirier downed the reigning UFC featherweight champion, earning the title and his upcoming Saturday unification match with reigning UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagoemdov at UFC 242. Related: UFC 242: What Will Be Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Legacy When All Is Said And Done?
