UFC 219: Fighters react to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s mauling of Edson Barboza



Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0) absolutely brutalized Edson Barboza (19-5) for three rounds in the co-main event of UFC 219. ‘The Eagle’ was relentless from the opening bell, pressuring Barboza on the feet until he eventually got him to the ground and mauled him with his fists to the tune of a 30-25, 30-25, 30-24 unanimous decision victory.

When asked about the current state of the UFC lightweight division and the two champions—Conor McGregor and Tony Ferguson— who currently sit above him in the rankings, Nurmagomedov had the following to say, “I don’t think about those two bulls**t guys. I think about only me.” How can you not love this guy?

Here’s what some fellow fighters had to say about his disturbing and dominant performance tonight in Las Vegas.
