KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV has probably clamped on thousands of submission moves on his opponents.
Hell, when he was a kid he even tried to put several on a bear cub he was wrestling.
But to this deadly expert of the fine art of Russian Sambo, none could have been more satisfying than that chokehold (looked more like a neck crank) he clamped on bitter rival Conor McGregor at UFC 229.
Like an anaconda squeezing you tighter than your true love, Khabib meticulously took his time and clamped it on with single-minded ferocity that he initially refused to release the hold even after McGregor tapped his surrender in the fourth round.
KHABIB. I’m not going to defend Khabib for climbing out of the cage and going after McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach.
It’s unprofessional and tarnished his moment of triumph.
But I am going to disagree with some of these rabid McGregor fan boys who insist on parity with McGregor’s attack on the bus carrying Khabib in April of this year.
The difference is premeditation. Khabib’s actuation was spur of the moment and spontaneous.
In stark contrast, Conor packed a plane full of his goons and flew across the Atlantic to confront Khabib at the Barclays Center.
That’s why he and his cohorts are facing criminal charges for assault and criminal mischief.
And that’s why he has declined to press charges against Khabib for the post-fight melee.
There’s no parity here, but disparity.
Keep on throwing stones at a beehive and you will get your comeuppance.
VERBATIM. “Some people say I did the wrong thing, others that I did the right thing.You can’t confine an eagle to a cage. And I showed them that.” - Khabib Nurmagomedov( http://www.express.co.uk)
LAST ROUND. It’s on the prettiest Naval Architect and Marine Engineer in the country, my inaanak Julie A. Villamor. Cheers!
