When former interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier entered the octagon against Benoit Saint-Denis at UFC 299 in March, he was coming off a knockout loss to Justin Gaethje in his previous fight.  Poirier had two options: either he would have suffered his first career loss in back-toback fights, or he might have defeated the rising star.  

Saint-Denis was given the chance to be a contender in the rankings and move up.  He was looking for his biggest career win after a winning streak of five fights.  He was the betting favorite.    

Saint-Denis dominated Poirier early on, but “The Diamond”, as he is known to his fans, won the fight in round two.  Rewatch the win that earned Poirier a title shot against Islam Makhachev at UFC 302.
