Tonight in Abu Dhabi, Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Dustin Poirier in the fashion we’ve come to expect.
Nurmagomedov’s grappling proved too much for Poirier to overcome, and the champion got the submission in round three of their five round title fight. Naturally, plenty of their UFC colleagues had something to say about the contest.

Many have tried , none have succeeded . Watching Khabib fights are amazing . The calmness , the control , the ability to break his opponent’s will to compete is outright fascinating #UFC242
