Arguably, Conor had a bit better score, but as the whole round was literally spent on the mat, these strikes had almost no influence on the round.
And let me tell you something, Nurmagomedov strikes like a freaking beast! In my opinion, the first round was very hard for Conor as he had to defend himself all the time.
When it comes to the strikes, though, I and judges think that Conor owned Khabib. The former two-division champion landed astonishing 39 strikes, with Khabib landing only 18, which is significantly lower.
As for the takedowns, the story is a bit different. This 70kg man fights like a beast! I think he could even tackle a bear or a lion, and actually he did wrestle a bear as a child but hey, Russians are known for being very strong and athletic.
Simply put, Khabib went one for two takedowns in the first round. The pressure was high on Conor McGregor as he now had to repel this monstrous energy that Khabib had.
Unfortunately for Conor, Khabib managed to successfully finish those takedowns and keep him on the ground during the whole first round.
So, in my opinion, the first round went very well for Khabib, almost obliterating Conor in grappling and takedowns.
This is where things get interesting and where Khabib showed his teeth. Just 25 seconds into round 2 and chill, he landed a significant strike with his right.
This strike caught the Irishman by surprise and obliterated him as he almost fully hit the mat. Only his hand and knee hit the ground for a split second, after which he recovered smoothly.
This time, Irishman evaded a debacle just by a tiny notch. Again, Nurmagomedov did what he knew best and took the fight to the mat, once again making McGregor begging for mercy.
I really think that Nurmagomedov did everything to turn the fight to his odds, particularly when he took the fight to the mat. Spending more than a couple of minutes on the mat, Nurmagomedov had a full control over the fight.
Having landed amazing 41 of 60 significant strikes, Nurmagomedov annihilated Conor who got only 5 of 13 significant strikes. As for the takedowns…well, not many of them were there.
Actually, there was one attempt by Nurmagomedov, but nothing too severe. The second round was much more punch-rich than the first one. Sure enough, as soon as they started going through the tunnel, exactly what I knew was gonna happen.
I was like, 'We'll be lucky enough just to get him out of here without the belt. The events made a mockery of what was otherwise a hard-fought, back-and-forth championship fight at the highest level.
Nurmagomedov, of Dagestan, tried to take McGregor down in the opening minute of the fight. He managed to get McGregor to a seated position on the floor, but McGregor did well stalling him there and landed several elbows to the side of Nurmagomedov's head as they jostled for position.
In a shocking moment, Nurmagomedov briefly dropped McGregor with a right hand early in the second round. As McGregor scrambled to get back to his feet, Nurmagomedov launched into a flying knee attempt and then used the opportunity to take McGregor down.
Nurmagomedov spent the majority of the round in top position, working ground and pound and looking for a kimura. McGregor, of Dublin, Ireland, stuffed Nurmagomedov's early attempts to get it to the ground in the third and went to work with his offense.
McGregor scored good knees and punches to the body after a stuffed attempt, and he popped Nurmagomedov's head back with an uppercut.
