Dustin Poirier shut down the hype train of Benoit Saint-Denis with a nasty second-round KO over the Frenchman.

Poirier battled early adversity in the first round, facing an onslaught of pressure from "The God Of War." However, in the second round, he found his timing, rocked BSD early, and capitalized later in the round, landing a massive right hook to end the fight.

I got touched up a little; he was strong. Eddie Alvarez gave me my shot when I was coming up, so I played it forward. Hold your position or lose it.
