Last night at UFC 242 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 started the fight extremely dominantly with classic ground and pound and pressuring him with his wrestling. In the second round, however, Poirier had little success as he caught Khabib with an overhand right which wobbled him for a bit, but Khabib managed to take Poirier down and dominated him on the ground for the remainder of the round.

It was the third round where Poirier had the most success as he had locked Khabib a tight guillotine choke and it looked like he had the Russian, but Khabib managed to get out of that position and immediately transitioned to Poirier’s back and locked him up in a rear-naked choke and ultimately had Poirier tap with just 2:06 seconds remaining on the clock.

With this win, Khabib Nurmagomedov improved his record to 28-0.
