Who can stop Khabib Nurmagomedov?
The 25-year-old Dagestani grappler kept his professional record unblemished and ran through another respected opponent at UFC on Fox 11, as he took a unanimous decision over Rafael dos Anjos on Saturday at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. Dos Anjos entered the cage on a five-fight winning streak and walked out as another notch on Nurmagomedov’s belt.
Now 22-0 overall, Nurmagomedov has won all six of his bouts since arriving in the Ultimate Fighting Championship in January 2012, besting dos Anjos, Pat Healy, Abel Trujillo, Thiago Tavares, Gleison Tibau and Kamal Shalorus. The two-time combat sambo world champion overwhelmed dos Anjos with a relentless clinch game, takedowns and ground-and-pound, sweeping the scorecards with identical 30-27 marks.
