For everyone who watched the fight know that it was a total submission. Khabib submitted Poirier with a rear naked choke in the third round to retain his title at the UFC 242 on Saturday.
Khabib moved to 28-0 with a flawless performance at The Arena on Yas Island in the United Arab Emirates where he tired and completely exhausted the American with his trademark mauling against the fence. The crowd went wild shouting “Khabib, Khabib”.
‘The Eagle’ is expected to go against lightweight contender Tony Ferguson. Although Khabib has shown interest in a superfight against retired UFC legend, Georges St-Pierre. As for the fight with Ferguson, Khabib was quiet and later said “The last two years was very busy for me, I want to relax a little bit, I have a bit too much pressure on my shoulders,” he said. “Give me a little bit of time, a couple of days.”
