UFC 242 video: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Dustin Poirier full fight highlights

Watch highlights of the UFC 242 main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is still the undisputed UFC lightweight champion.

In the UFC 242 main event, the undefeated Dagestani dynamo thoroughly outclassed interim champ Dustin Poirier, taking him down several times and just bullying a world-class opponent on the ground. Apart from a few strikes early in round two, Khabib was scarcely touched and got the exact fight he wanted. Poirier didn’t have many answers for the grappling and chain wrestling of Khabib, and when Dustin’s guillotine choke in round three failed, Nurmagomedov answered with a rear-naked choke to seal the deal.

Watch the highlights below.

Round 3 - Leg kick from Poirier. Straight right from Khabib and he looks for a takedown. Poirier with a guillotine! It looks deep! He holds on for sooo long and readjusts, but Khabib eventually pops his head out! Wow! Now khabib is on top and he’s looking for a choke. Can’t get it. He tries again! Khabib sink it and POIRIER TAPS! KHABIB DOES IT AGAIN!

Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Dustin Poirier via submission (rear naked choke), 2:10 of round 3
