The Eagle: Another level

This early morning when the country is preparing for the new year, lovers of mixed martial arts gathered at the TV screens.
Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov returned after injury, and defeated Edison Barboza at UFC 219!

The battle took place in Las Vegas, on the T-Mobile arena and the audience warmly greeted the mountaineer in the hat when he headed down the path to the octagon. The battle began with the pressure of Khabib in the first seconds. The whole battle "Eagle" dominated the opponent, calling the opponent to active actions from time to time. Edson Barboza - the best striker in the division lost in all respects. Nurmagomedov threw 160 blows, of which goals reached 154 against 26 strokes of Barboza.

In addition to the battle, almost everyone followed the process of weight cutting. In view of the circumstances that occurred in March this before the fight with Tony Ferguson, when Khabib was hospitalized a couple of hours before the weigh-in ceremony, the question was open to all: Can Khabib make weight?

Khabib himself repeatedly stated that the incident had nothing to do with the problem of the weight itself, but only a malfunction of the body that was associated with a cumulative effect of fatigue due to all charges, which he proved at the weighing ceremony, driving even the extra 100 gr.

No less important event for Khabib took place on the morning of December 30. In the family of the Nurmagomedovs there was a replenishment - Khabib had a son! Do not deny that this is what gave Habib forces and additional motivation for victory
