Las Vegas UFC 219 Tournament T-Mobile Arena
The battle of styles. Habib’s impeccable struggle and Barbosa’s powerful striking technique.
From the first seconds, the Brazilian began to beat off the Russians with powerful low kicks. Barbosa always loved to fight long distances, working on counterattacks. Nurmagomedov tried to transfer the opponent to the ground, but the first attempt was not successful. But by the middle of the round, Edson was already lying on the octagon floor, trying to survive. At the end of the first five-minute period, Habib began to execute the most brutal “Ground and Pound”. Edson had a dissection on his face.
Nurmagomedov threw out jabs, but the Brazilian did not intend to give up and several times hit hard on his opponent. By the end of the round, Edson was back on the floor, where he received another batch of punches. Inexplicably, the Brazilian managed to bring the fight to the third round, but even there he did not show decent resistance.
Famous for his endurance, Barbosa, to the final segment lost all his energy. Habib again began to repeat the same mistakes and lowered his hands, missing a few hits in the rack. But by this moment the enemy was not a real threat, and just lived to see the final gong.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI2NDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzNjAlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjIlMkYlMkZvay5ydSUyRnZpZGVvZW1iZWQlMkY3NjU0NjAyODU5NjklMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyMjAlMjIlMjBhbGxvdyUzRCUyMmF1dG9wbGF5JTIyJTIwYWxsb3dmdWxsc2NyZWVuJTNFJTNDJTJGaWZyYW1lJTNF[/vc_raw_html][vc_separator style=”shadow” border_width=”10″][vc_column_text]The verdict of the judges was devastating: 30-25, 30-25 and 30-24.
