Dustin Poirier bloodied Max Holloway and won a unanimous decision for the UFC interim lightweight title Saturday night, denying Holloway his chance to become only the fourth fighter to hold two belts at the same time. Holloway, the UFC featherweight champion, moved up to the 155-pound class for the first time, attempting to gain the second belt. He also was trying to avenge his loss to Poirier in his first UFC fight in 2012 . Holloway had Poirier in trouble in the third round but couldn't overcome the relentless barrage of punches.Each judge scored the fight 49-46 for Poirier (17-4).Gastelum was obviously groggy after being floored for the second time, and he quickly went down again.For now, the interim title is worth celebrating for Poirier.
