Holloway (20-4 MMA, 16-4 UFC), the UFC featherweight champion who was moving up to fight for the interim lightweight belt, suffered a unanimous decision loss to Dustin Poirier (25-5 MMA, 17-4 UFC) in the main event of Saturday’s card, which took place at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. In the co-main event, Gastelum (15-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) fell short against Israel Adesanya (17-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) by unanimous decision in an interim middleweight title bout.
