UFC Umar Nurmagomedov choked out Sergey Morozov
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousin makes spectacular UFC debut
While Khabib Nurmagomedov’s illustrious UFC career may already be over, the family lineage will run on in the sport with his cousin, Umar, making a spectacular UFC debut at Fight Island 8.
With Dana White in attendance, Nurmagomedov couldn’t have made a better first impression in the UFC, forcing Sergey Morozov to submit within two rounds, using a chokehold that had been synonymous with Khabib’s own ascent to the top.
It was Morozov’s first defeat in more than three years, and the wild celebrations for Nurmagomedov’s corner at the end of the bout were marked by the appearance of Khabib himself.
