Khabib Nurmagomedov unified the Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight title with a third-round submission win over interim champion Dustin Poirier in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. The Dagestan native escaped a guillotine choke to take Poirier's back before shifting his position and sinking into a rear naked choke. Poirier quickly tapped, sending the crowd favorite to a career 28-0 at UFC 242.

Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov (born 20 September 1988) is a Russian professional mixed martial artist. He is a two-time Combat Sambo World Champion and the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion.

With 28 wins and no losses, he holds the longest undefeated streak in MMA. His style of sambo wrestling has made him one of the most dominant athletes in the history of the sport, and is widely regarded as one of the best fighters in the history of MMA.

He is the first Muslim (HANFI.. same as Tremain) and the first Russian to win a UFC title.

His dad thought him all he learnt from the Russian Army since he was like 8 years old.

It is part of the HANFI religion to learn to defend yourself in some way... most like knives or some kind of wrestling/martial arts.

Tremain's mom taught Tremain "street fight" (before Tremain knew any karate) which she learnt from her older brother, the gang leader, who became a chicken thief when he became an old man.

Putin loves this guy too. LOL

I would love to shake his hand one day.

What is MMA and why is it important?

There are basically two ways to fight... you either wrestle/judo... or you box/kick/karate.

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) mixes them all into one.

People like Khabib who are originally wrestlers who later learnt karate/punching/kicking, seem to have more success than karate people who learn to wrestle later.

It's not.

As long as it didn't involve a canoe, it's not important to you.
