On Saturday night at UFC 236, Dustin Poirier and Max Holloway will meet in the main event with the interim lightweight title on the line. It’s a rematch, in case you weren’t aware.

Poirier at the time was 23 years old and making his fourth UFC appearance. Holloway, meanwhile, was 20 and making his UFC debut. In the newest installment of “Beer Goggle History,” MMA Junkie columnist Ben Fowlkes cracks open a cold brew from Holloway’s island homeland and travels back to that fateful night.
