Despite one or two moments of worry, Khabib Nurmagomedov did what he does best and kept on winning.
Withstanding early scares from Dustin Poirier both on the feet and on the mat in the second and third round, Nurmagomedov escaped what looked to be a tight guillotine choke before reversing position, taking the back and quickly sinking in a rear-naked choke of his own for the submission win.
