Said Nurmagomedov not surprised by quick submission win over Muin Gafurov at UFC 294

ABU DHABI – Said Nurmagomedov bounced back from his loss to Jonathan Martinez in Said Nurmagomedov fashion.

The Dagestani fighter made quick work of Muin Gafurov at Saturday’s UFC 294 at Etihad Arena. Nurmagomedov (18-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) submitted Gafurov (18-6 MMA, 0-2 UFC) with a guillotine choke at the 1:13 mark of Round 1.

“I’m really happy. I’m really happy,” Nurmagomedov said at the UFC 294 post-fight press conference. “This is already the third time I make it so fast.”

Nurmagomedov is back on the win column after the loss to Martinez snapped a four-fight winning streak. Nurmagomedov is known for his quick guillotine submission wins, and yet, was not surprised his opponent decided to grapple with him early.

“I was not surprised because I knew he always starts so aggressive in his fights, and I had a plan,” Nurmagomedov said.
