The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Brooklyn, New York over the weekend to host yet another exciting night of fights. Brooklyn’s own Barclays Center featured the highly anticipated fight card of UFC 223 live on pay-per-view for fight fans around the world.
Featured in the night’s main event, undefeated UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov faced off against Al Iaquinta for the undisputed UFC lightweight belt. Iaquinta took the fight on just a days notice, as UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway was not permitted to finish his weight cut after being observed by the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC).
Nurmagomedov put on a dominant performance over his opponent, ultimately earning a unanimous decision victory after five intense rounds of battle inside the octagon. Check out highlights from the match up that earned Nurmagomedov the title down below:
