UFC lightweights Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier put on a fight of the year contender over the weekend. Now footage of Gaethje’s stunning rolling thunder attempt from the fight has made its way onto the internet.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Glendale, Arizona on Saturday, April 14 to host the promotion’s latest fight night. This time around, the world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion hosted the highly anticipated fight card of UFC on FOX 29 from inside Glendale’s Gila River Arena.
Headlining the night’s event, Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier put on a bloody octagon war for the Glendale crowd. In the end, Poirier earned a TKO victory over his opponent in the fourth round.
However, Gaethje attempted a rather unorthodox move during the fight that still has fans talking. At the very end of the round, just shy of the bell, Gaethje launched himself in the air and flipped towards Poirier in an attempt to land a rolling thunder kick.
The stunning move can be seen within the video above.
