The Russian fighter troubled McGregor with his wrestling ability, while preventing his opponent from standing until the rest of the round.
The Irishman was then injured by a right-hand cross from the Russian fighter in the second round and the fight immediately resumed with a piting match below, but this time the Russian champion was able to prevent the challenger from lifting his back from the floor.
McGregor was still able to survive until the end of the round, smiling a little when the horn signaled the end of the round sounded. In the third round he was able to keep the fight still in standing condition, releasing several attacks on the opponent's face and body when he rediscovered the distance of his hit.
After all, it was a little late, and Khabib Nurmagomedov regained control in the fourth round, sucking McGregor's energy under his pressure before strangling the opponent to end the fight in the fourth round at 3:03.
