Will Dustin Poirier Khabib Nurmagomedov dominate

Mega comeback in the UFC | Choke Victory by Khabib

The MMA machine is back - and how!

Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov (30) flew again and delivered the next spectacular appearance at UFC 242. At the showdown of the lightweights (reigning champion vs. interim champion) in Abu Dhabi, the mega fighter against Dustin Poirier (30) made the comeback of the year, won by giving up in the third round.

Nurmagomedov continues to build his balance sheet, celebrates his 28th victory in the 28th fight and continues to work on his insane legacy. Incredible: he has been unbeaten for eleven years! 336 days after beating Conor McGregor, the Russian puts on the next big show!

At the beginning Nurmagomedov dominates the fight, starts one of his infamous ground attacks in round 1 and has the American almost knocked out several times. But Poirier keeps up. In the second round, a completely different picture suddenly emerges: Two or three crashing swingers make Khabib wobble. After that, Poirier even has the chance to beat the champion with his own resources. But: Khabib frees himself and closes the sack with another ground attack, with which he forces the Americans to give up.

McGregor, Poirier - the big question: who is supposed to beat this Nurmagomedov?
