Dustin Poirier defeats Conor McGregor in 2nd round of UFC 257

One of the biggest nights to start the year for UFC ended in shock this weekend.

In a rematch seven years in the making, Dustin Poirier defeated Conor McGregor with a second-round technical knockout in the main event of UFC 257 on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi early Sunday.

This was the second time the two lightweight fighters have been in the octagon together. McGregor won their first match in just 120 seconds in 2014.

Other results from the main fight card included Michael Chandler defeating Dan Hooker by TKO in the first-round, Joanne Calderwood knocking off Jessica Eye via a unanimous decision, Makhmud Muradov taking out Andrew Sanchez with a third-round TKO and Marina Rodriguez defeating Amanda Ribas by a second-round knockout.

As of now, McGregor and Poirier's next fights have not been decided, though the possibility of a rematch has been speculated.
