Khabib Nurmagedov might end his career as an undefeated champion.
On Saturday, Nurmagomedov quickly submitted opponent Justin Gaethje in the second round with a triangle choke for his 29th win a row. Unfortunately for Gaethje, the ref didn’t see him tap out, and he was put to sleep due to the choke.
