Dustin Poirier and Anthony Pettis engaged in an incredible fight at UFC Norfolk, with Poirier getting the win. Here’s how MMA fighters reacted on Twitter.

Dustin Poirier and Anthony Pettis engaged in a bloody, grueling, and thrilling main event at UFC Norfolk in Virginia. Poirier had Pettis badly hurt at the end of round 1, cut the former WEC and UFC lightweight champion in round 2, a bunch of wild back-and-forth scrambling ensued in the round, but Poirier was able to get the win in round 3. In somewhat anticlimactic circumstances, Pettis tapped out after suffering an apparent injury while trying to roll his way out of Poirier’s tight body triangle.

This was a huge win for Poirier, who called for a fight against the winner of Eddie Alvarez vs. Justin Gaethje, and perhaps the end of Anthony Pettis’ hopes of getting back to a championship bout. Here’s how MMA fighters reacted on Twitter to a truly fantastic battle.
