If you’re into the whole super slo-mo thing, Saturday’s UFC on FOX 29 main event was custom-built for those kinds of highlights.
UFC on FOX 29 took place at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz., near Phoenix. The card aired on FOX following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass. In the headliner, Dustin Poirier (23-5 MMA, 15-4 UFC) finally stopped Justin Gaethje (18-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) early in the fourth round with a TKO after the two punched (Poirier) and kicked (Gaethje) each other unmercifully for the first 15 minutes.
Additionally, Alex Oliveira (19-4-1 MMA, 8-3-1 UFC) choked out Carlos Condit (30-12 MMA, 7-8 UFC) in a bloody co-main event, and the prelims featured a handful of great stoppages, as well.
