Umar took on Serguy Morozov, a 31 year old Kazakh with a 16-3 record. talkSPORT is on Fight Island and covered the bout from cage side.
Khabib served as the cornerman for his cousin Umar Nurmagomedov
The first round started off tepid with both men feeling each other out, but it was clear from the get-go that Umar has some seriously educated feet as he went searching for leg kicks, question mark kicks, crane kicks, you name it.
It took him two minutes to shoot on his opponent in the trademark style of his cousin and he quickly gained control of Morozov’s back.
Khabib may be retired, but he plans to be involved in his the careers of those close to him
Nurmagomedov’s jab was working well in the opening round, too. As his opponent looked to gain entry or line up a kick, the Russian’s timing was on full display and he cracked him with a couple of very stiff jabs.
One Morozov tried throwing an overhand right, Umar shot on him quicker than a hiccup and scored his second takedown of the round, once again taking his opponent’s back. However, the buzzer would save Morozov from real harm.
Umar rocked his opponent to open up the second round, a shot which sent Khabib into a frenzy at cage side as he encouraged his cousin to go for the finish. Khabib did not stop talking to his cousin from cage side the entire fight.
Khabib did not stop shouting the entire fight
Every time Morozov tried to land something on Umar, the 24 year old found a way to shoot for the takedown and was successful in nearly every attempt.
Once he got the back of Morozov once again, he synched in the rear-naked choke and submitted his opponent out cold. Fair play to Morozov for not tapping, but there was no way he was escaping either.
Umar Nurmagomedov looked for the back the entire fight and when he got it, it was over
Khabib looked delighted at his cousin’s victory and immediately entered the cage. He consoled his cousin’s opponent and then reconnected with old teammate Daniel Cormier who was conducting the post-fight interview.
Khabib translated for his cousin when he was interviewed by Cormier and he said he was happy to win the exact same way
Khabib did nine years ago to the day with a rear-naked choke, but he did it one round faster than his cousin!
