Here’s an excerpt from MMA Junkie…
McGregor walked forward with his hands low to start the fight, stalking from the center. A McGregor high kick was blocked, and Nurmagomedov responded by shooting from distance. McGregor was quick to react, sprawling and nearly sneaking around to the back. However, Nurmagomedov refused to let go of a single-leg and eventually was able to bring the action to the canvas. McGregor remained calm underneath, looking almost bored as Nurmagomedov triangled his legs and kept his opponent pinned to the canvas. McGregor was busy from his back, sneaking in a few elbows and punches, and Nurmagomedov kept control of the positioning and brought in a few punches of his own.
