Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor in 4th round of UFC 229 event. Khabib was controlling the fight from the beginning and Conor just was not able to give any answers to Khabib tactic.
And tactic from Khabib was a very similar to any of his fights when he is fighting against good striker. First two rounds he just used wrestling to tired up his opponent and in the third round when Conor’s punches did not had that power any more, he started to box with him. During this period, Khabib dropped Conor once, but at this stage it was clear that there is no real threat from Conor punches and Khabib looked much faster than Conor.
In fourth round Khabib took Conor down again, and this time Khabib decided to finish the match and grab Conor to a neck crank and Conor tapped.
Great (and expected) wrestling performance by Khabib, and Conor looked little bit surprised by Khabib’s strength and grappling skills.
