Khabib switched strangleholds out of pity for Gaethje’s parents

Khabib Nurmagomedov proved once again last weekend that he is the very best and a true UFC legend. The Russian controlled the title fight against Gaethje from start to finish and never ran into problems. In fact, Khabib was so dominant that he switched grips to spare his opponent.

The title fight between Khabib and Gaethje ended, like many of The Eagle’s battles, on the ground. Just like his predecessors Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, Justin Gaethje also had no answer to Khabib’s wrestling violence. If the Russian gets you, there’s no way around it. You then have two more options: tap or pass out.

Khabib spares Gaethje

Yet there was also a third possibility: namely an arm fracture. Before Khabib switched to a Triangle Choke, the Russian seemed to go for a different grip. His own father’s favorite. This was the perfect way to win his last fight. Nurmagomedov senior died this year because of the consequences of corona. This is also the reason why his son is now quitting. Without him he does not want to continue.

Still, the champion chose not to end the fight in this way. The reason for this was that Khabib did not want to unnecessarily injure his opponent. According to his training buddy Daniel Cormier, Khabib knew that Gaethje’s parents were in the audience and that their son would not tag. So the only outcome of this grip was an arm fracture. Khabib did not want to do this to his opponent and his loved ones.

The UFC champion changed grips and squeezed until Gaethje went out the light. Thus, Khabib once again proved that he is not only the very best, but also has a lot of respect for the sport and his opponent. A wonderful end to an impressive career. 29 times The Eagle got into an MMA fight and managed to win them all. Now the unbeaten champion is retiring.

McGregor’s record smashed

He does that with a large bag of money. Khabib took a bizarre prize pool with this victory and thus smashed McGregor’s record. You can read here exactly how much he got for his fight against Gaethje.
