Twitter reacts to Dustin Poirier’s thrilling submission of Michael Chandler at UFC 281

Dustin Poirier returned from a career-long layoff on Saturday and defeated Michael Chandler in the UFC 281 featured bout.

Poirier (28-7 MMA, 20-6 UFC), a former interim lightweight champion, returned from a title-fight loss when he earned a third-round submission win over Chandler (23-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC) in their anticipated lightweight bout at Madison Square Garden in New York.

With a champion recently crowed in Islam Makhachev, “The Diamond” now represents a new potential challenger down the line.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Poirier’s victory over Chandler at UFC 281.
