8 ko/tko throughout 30 fights = zero power. Don’t ignore it teddy bear.
It’s genuine that Nurmagomedov was a grappler throughout his MMA vocation, but we have seen him occasionally finish his foes with strikes, nevertheless he generally does go for submissions as an alternative. In the UFC, we observed Nurmagomedov finish Thiago Tavares and Darrell Horcher with strikes. He also experienced 6 wins by TKO prior to getting into the UFC. So to say that he has zero power does not appear to be all that fair. Obviously, McGregor has a lot more electric power. But at the finish of the day, the video game is all about performing what ever it usually takes to get your hand lifted.
Even though Nurmagomedov’s record might not be littered with knockout wins, it’s still littered with wins and unblemished, period. Despite the fact that McGregor is seeking his greatest to goad the former champion into responding, Nurmagomedov very likely finds it entertaining that McGregor nevertheless tries to get photographs at him even although he has officially stepped away from the recreation.
Do you think the earth will ever see the trilogy combat concerning Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmaomedov?
