    Poirier was worn out. He let that chin up so it could end

    Round 3: Poirier has a guillotine in from his back on the ground. It's in tight! Khabib in trouble! He can go here.... Khabib somehow slips out! Then he goes on to quickly submit Dustin Poirier from a rear naked choke-hold!

    Nurmagomedov wins via submission in round 3!

    Great respect by both combatants as they exchange pleasantries and also shirts. Bruce Buffer makes it official to a rapturous crowd as Nurmagomedov is being interviewed by Ariel Helwani.

    Khabib gives thanks to God, he gives credit to his father, Javier Mendez and all his team. He speaks about respect in MMA and states his dislike of trash-talking in MMA. Now, speaks Russian.

    Dustin Poirier now being interviewed by Ariel Helwani. Dustin is upset and feels like he could have done more. He is greeted by many cheers from the crowd. He is graceful in defeat. Poirier has put in his best tonight and has nothing to be ashamed about.

    That was my first RBR. I hope it was beneficial to those who are unable to watch it live or those whom want to give it a read even if they seen it live. I would like to apologise as I am quite new to UFC so I am not fully acquainted with the terminology and different moves/actions etc. in MMA.

    Thank you to all who took part! Hope you enjoyed it!

    I feel a little bit the same and can't wait to see what Fergerson can do against Khabib who is outstanding at what he does but i'm just not a really a fan and tbh I suspect a lot of fans feel the same.
    I think his PPV number here and when he doesn't have a name opponent will show what I have felt all along that he won't be as big of a draw as people think

    Went very much as thought,not hard to predict was it?as Khabib does this to everyone.
    Without the mythical background in Dagestan,fighting bears ect.I don't think anyone would care as his style is hardly fan friendly way of fighting and it really is predictable.
    course Ferguson gets his shot,loses like the rest and then it's gonna be a big cash out fight with GSP who out of everyone will have a good chance in beating Khabib as GSP has a similar boring but effective style.

    So mock McGregor all you want but he's still the toughest fight Khabib has had since winning the belt. Dont get me wrong the dude has disgraced himself outside if the cage but his last in ring performance isn't as poor as a lot of people make it out to be. Only Gaethje and Ferguson can beat Khabib tbh. His wrestling and control are too good.

    Hope it wasn't staged?with khabib somehow slipping out and getting the submission himself.
    For the most part I think MMA is legit but just like in boxing and definitely in WWE I have my doubts as to whether some of these fights are staged.
    McGregor fight with Eddie Alvarez was highly suspect with Alvarez dropping to the floor every time Conor touched him.McGregor v Diaz 2 was another that I find dodgy as Diaz was just like Alvarez and going down when touched.Both those fighters have fought since and taken big shots and have been fine.
    They could easily string everyone along into the legend that is McGregor.

    I want someone to do to Khabib what Masvidal did to Askren.

    Ironically Conor got slated for a one sided loss over "five rounds"he even won a round against Khabib.
