In the fight for the title UFC world champion at "Fight Island" in Abu Dhabi, a Russian MMA fighter defeated American Justin Gagee in the 2nd round Khabib Nurmagomedov.
This fight was the first for the Russian after a sad event - his father, mentor and trainer Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov died July 3 from the consequences of COVID-19. After a successful fight, the athlete decided to end his sporting career.
Nurmagomedov has 29 wins without defeat on his record. He has been UFC champion since April 2018, defending his status twice against K. McGregor and D. Porier.
