Khabib’s Cousin Umar Nurmagomedov Dominates UFC Still Undefeated

Umar Nurmagomedov

A former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov cousin Umar Nurmagomedov which has currently a perfect record of 15 wins and 0 loss in MMA and 3 wins and 0 loss in UFC showed the trademark of overwhelming grappling pressure that has come to be synonymous with his family’s name by making light work Maness (14-2 MMA and 3-1 UFC), en route for a unanimous victory by scores of 30-27. 30-26.

The bantamweight bout was part of Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 38 main event, which took place at UFC Apex.

After a quick feeling-out between the sides, Nurmagomedov was able to take down his first takedown in about 90 seconds. Nurmagomedov completely subdued Maness using his top pressure. He only took a few shots to get him out of guard and into the mount. Nurmagomedov threatened to submit Maness late, but it was too late.

Nurmagomedov took less than 40 seconds in the second round to takedown Maness and place him on his back. Maness did not get up during the round because Nurmagomedov held control from the top, from his back and then hit big shots in the final moments of an entirely one-sided round.

Maness was exhausted and without answers, Nurmagomedov began to show some of his striking skills with a hard kick to his face and other solid strikes. Nurmagomedov then took down Maness and beat him to the finish.
