Max Holloway vs Dustin Poirier full fight video preview for UFC 236 main event

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion, Max Holloway, will look to avenge his 2012 loss to Dustin Poirier — and capture the interim lightweight title in the process — when he battles “The Diamond” in the UFC 236 pay-per-view (PPV) main event on ESPN+ this Sat. night (April 13, 2019) inside State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

A lot has chanced since their first go-round. Holloway (20-3) would need a handful of bouts to grow as a fighter, but in the wake of his unanimous decision loss to Conor McGregor, something clicked and sent Holloway on a violent rampage throughout the featherweight division. The result is 13 straight wins, 10 stoppages, and a division title.

As for Poirier (24-5), he struggled to stay consistent, putting together a couple of win streaks before wasting them with an ill-timed loss. That prompted a move to lightweight, where the reinvigorated “Diamond” has remained unbeaten in his previous five fights, which includes gnarly finishes in his last three.
