UFC 223 Main & Co-Main Event Results & Breakdown
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Al Laquinta:
In the first two rounds, Khabib was able to take down Laquinta and do some damage but in the later rounds it seems as if Khabib is getting tired and bored as he started to fight while standing and exchanging punches. I appreciate the efforts put in by Laquinta, he stood up for the challenge and fought Khabib on a very short notice as things were getting crazy in UFC. Conor attacked the Bus carrying UFC 223 fighters and I think it’s quite foolish by Conor. He must have found another great ad after Burger King hired him for their ad campaign but I don’t think he will be able to return to the Octagon now. Excess of money can also make you go crazy. Anyway, because Khabib was the more dominant attacker and because he did the most damage, he was crowned as the undisputed lightweight champion. Well deserved victory by Eagle.
Rose Namajunas vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk:
I was really amazed by the skill set Rose has and this girl has a brilliant brain. Rose was successful in keeping distance and showed great head movement. The fighting style which Rose has adopted is unique and not easy for other fighters to judge. Rose has proved that it was not a fluke and that she is the real deal, the real winner as she defeated Joanna for the second time.
