Said Nurmagomedov wasted no time to showcase his grit as he faced Mark Striegl. Nurmagomedov made a statement with a first-round TKO to open up the preliminary card at UFC in Abu Dhabi.
Nurmagomedov (14-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) didn’t even allow Striegl (18-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) to settle down as he charged at his opponent. After connecting with a vicious left hook, he unloaded his fire power until his opponent fell and was out.
Ideally, I’d want to return end of December, beginning of January. But honestly, I’m ready to fight and maybe replace somebody the next event on Fight Island. … I’m ready for top 10, top 15. I’m going to show much more. I’m just going to go home to spend time with my family and then eat.Said Nurmagomedov
