On Saturday night Khabib Nurmagomedov retained his lightweight title at UFC 229. He did so by dominating his opponent Conor McGregor by repeatedly taking him down and wearing him out.
This audio of Khabib talking trash to McGregor while ground and pounding him sums up his impressive performance. Although Khabib managed to overshadow his own performance when he jumped out of the octagon to fight a member of McGregor’s camp.

Minus getting caught and momentarily dropped, McGregor out boxed Khabib, but got absolutely dominated on the ground. Is it a little octagon rust or is Khabib just that much better?
I’m sure we’ll find out whenever they put a rematch together.
