Poirier defeats Hooker in epic main event at UFCVegas4. MORE:

Mike Perry also ended his two-fight skid with a one-sided unanimous decision over Mickey Gall in the penultimate fight of the UFC's fifth consecutive fan-free event in its hometown.

“It was a tough one,” Poirier said. “Dan came to fight. He's a tough guy. He's on the rise. He really thought he was going to get past me. I trusted in my team, in my skill and my work ethic.” Perry had lost five of his last seven fights, and his wild mixed martial arts career took another swerve in recent months when he split with his wife, separated from his coaches and decided that his girlfriend, Latory Gonzalez, would be the only person in his corner at this fight.

The show was the last of five weekend events at the UFC Apex gym on the promotion's corporate campus. The UFC has staged eight fan-free events amid the coronavirus pandemic since returning from an eight-week break.
