Wow - was impressed by Brookins stand up, was a little nervous there.

I really like Poirier -- especially since watching Fightville.

Poirer got him out of there quickly but he really looked like garbage doing it.

Needs to tighten up his defense and not be so cocky in there.

Good scrappy fight to watch, I think it's hard to be technical against someone like brookins who just throws pretty wild. Rogan is right about him holding his chin high though, I keep expecting him to just crumple in every exchange.

How did Poirier withstand that barrage and shake it off. Nice comeback.

Brookins has the same problems I have...not moving the head. Bad habit. It cost em the fight cuz he was tagged once DP chased em down.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
