UFC Fight Night 120 Results: Poirier Stops Pettis in Bloodbath, Brown Destroys Sanchez
On Saturday, Nov. 11, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 120: Poirier vs. Pettis from the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va.
In the night’s main event, surging lightweight contender Dustin Poirier looked to continue his recent run of success at 155 pounds as he took on former WEC and UFC champion Anthony Pettis. Poirier had gone 5-1 with one no-contest since returning to the lightweight division. Pettis, meanwhile, also recently returned to the division after a two-fight stint at featherweight. The Milwaukee fighter failed in his bid for the 145-pound title.
The co-main event featured a pair of battle-tested veterans as Matt Brown and Diego Sanchez clashed at welterweight.
The 13-fight event kicked off Saturday with three preliminary-card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30 p.m. ET. Four additional prelims aired live at 8 p.m ET on Fox Sports 1, with the six-fight main card following at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
