UFC 302 post-fight show: Reaction to Islam Makhachev’s dramatic war with Dustin Poirier

Dustin Poirier gave Islam Makhachev everything he could handle, but it wasn’t enough for “The Diamond” to finish his story in the main event of UFC 302, as the lightweight champion Makhachev earned a fifth-round submission win with an incredible finishing sequence.

Following Saturday night’s UFC pay-per-view event, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck, Jed Meshew, and Alexander K. Lee react to Makhachev’s late stoppage victory, Poirier’s competitive performance and fighting future, and where Makhachev goes from here. Additionally, the panel discusses Sean Strickland’s win over Paulo Costa in the co-main event, some of the horrendous scorecards from judges throughout the night, referee blunders, the quality of the card as a whole, Kevin Holland’s gnarly submission win, Dana White’s comments about Jon Jones being the best fighter in the world over Makhachev, and more.
