Habib Nurmagomedov defeated Kamal Shalorus by rear naked choke. The submission came at 2:08 in the third round.

Habib Nurmagomedov entered the fight as an undefeated Eastern-European prospect. Having fought seven times in 2011, Nurmagomedov caught Joe Silva's attention. His opponent, Kamal Shalorus was making his return to the cage after some time away following a loss to Jim Miller.

For three rounds it appeared that Nurmagomedov was several moves ahead of Shalorus, landing numerous power punches and preventing Shalorus from getting the fight to the ground. In the first round, Nurmagomedov clipped Kamal with an uppercut following a failed takedown attempt. He attempted to finish the fight but was unable to do so before time expired. In round two Shalorus looked to have regained his senses but still couldn't cut the cage off from Habib. Nurmagomedov completed several takedown attempts and battered the Iranian fighter with punches. The third round came to an end after Nurmagomedov sunk in a rear naked choke. Shalorus was forced to tap.

Habibi Nurmagomedov keeps his perfect record and improved to 17-0. It was his UFC debut. Kamal Shalorus drops to 0-2 in the UFC and 7-2-2 overall.
