During the post-fight press conference Poirier said,
I don’t want to say somebody’s a dirty fighter, but the first fight, you kneed me; the second fight, you tried to elbow me illegally and you gave me a wet willy. We’ve got to draw the line somewhere.
Poirier defeated Alvarez in the second round via TKO, which turned on a restart after Alvarez landed an illegal 12-to-6 downward elbow. Poirier is now at most one fight away from a UFC lightweight title shot following his fifth consecutive victory.
