The UFC 219 co-main event was billed as the modern day striker vs grappler match up, with Edson Barboza taking on Khabib Nurmagomedov. In the end, it was the powerhouse wrestler that prevailed, and it wasn’t even close.

With the scores of 30-25, 30-25, and 30-24, Khabib remained undefeated in 25 bouts adding yet another incredibly dominant performance to his resume.

Watch highlights below, along with a snippet from our play by play of the contest.

Rd.1- Barboza opens up with a vicious inside leg kick. Barboza lands a jab and misses with a wild overhand right. Nurm presses forward eating leg kicks before finally grabbing his foe. Barboza does a sound job of returning to open space, launching body kicks. Nurm rushes in with a flying knee and instantly goes for the takedown. Nurm starts landing big punches from the top and there is still a lot of time left in the round. Barboza locks up half guard but Nurm stands up and drops the hammer. Nurm goes Donkey Kong on Barboza’s face, relentlessly pounding away. Nurm reaches full mount but Barboza reclaims half guard, eating elbows in the process.
