Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight fan favorite, Dustin Poirier, put on yet another “Fight of the Night” performance when he swapped fists with Jim Miller at the UFC 208 pay-per-view (PPV) event last Saturday night (Feb. 11, 2017) inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Following the bout, “The Diamond” revealed extensive damage to his lead leg, a result of his opponent’s incessant leg kicks, but was fortunate enough to escape “The Empire State” without any significant or longterm damage.
Straight from the horse’s mouth:

The victory put Poirier (21-5) back into the win column and leaves him at 5-1 since moving back up to lightweight. Currently sitting at No. 10 in the official rankings, the Miller win could improve his placement when the updates are released later this week.
