Dustin Poirier got his vindication and his performance makes for some sweet UFC Calgary highlights.

In the main event of UFC Calgary earlier tonight (July 28), Poirier went one-on-one with Eddie Alvarez in a rematch from their May 2017 clash. While that fight ended in a controversial No Contest, there was a definitive ending this time. It was “The Diamond” who emerged victorious.

Alvarez had success in the opening round. He went to the leg kicks and did a good job closing the distance with body shots. Trouble started when he went for takedowns in the second stanza. Alvarez landed an illegal 12-6 elbow and both men were stood back up. Poirier teed off on Alvarez with knees, punches, and an elbow to seal the deal.
