Last weekend at UFC 242 which took place in Abu Dhabi, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov successfully defended his title by submitting interim champion Dustin Poirier in the third-round via rear-naked choke.

Khabib dominated the fight with his elite wrestling skills throughout the fight and although Poirier had his moments in the fight and in the third round, he had Khabib locked in a tight guillotine choke and held on to it as hard as he could, but ultimately Khabib got out of the hold and submitted Poirier via rear-naked choke with just 2:16 remaining on the clock.

Immediately after the fight,  former featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega tweeted that had he been in Poirier’s place performing the guillotine choke, he would have submitted Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Even though Brian Ortega is very confident of choking Khabib out, UFC commentator Joe Rogan doesn’t like Ortega’s chances against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

I disagree with Brian Ortega, he’s too small,” Rogan said on his podcast where even Brandon Schaub was present. “He’s a 145-pounder.”

Do you guys think Brian Ortega can beat Khabib Nurmagomedov?
