Brian Shaw Gets Choked Out by UFC Star Dustin Poirier During Training

Brian Shaw teams up with UFC star Dustin Poirier for some epic training.

Worlds collide as four-time World’s Strongest Man Brian Shaw recently trained with UFC Star Dustin Poirier. Hot off the heels of his victory over Conor McGregor, Poirier’s star has risen into the stratosphere. Shaw previously interviewed Poirier before the two decided to do some MMA style training. During the training Shaw learned how to throw some heavy low kicks while Poirier demonstrated how to subdue a bigger, stronger opponent with jiu-jitsu. That’s right, Dustin Poirier choked out Brian Shaw during their training.
