UFC 254 just wrapped up in Abu Dhabi and what was anticipated as the best card of the year absolutely delivered. But what caught everyone’s eyes was the main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje.

The Russian left no room for any doubts, he is unequivocally the number one fighter pound 4 pound in the world. His performance against the very dangerous Justin Gaethje was near perfection. Gaethje did have some success with the leg kicks in the first round but Nurmagomedov held his own on the feet and even hurt Gaethje multiple times. He finished the first round in a dominant position, looking to submit his opponent but lacked time. In the second round however, Gaethje was overwhelmed by Nurmagomedov’s frantic pace and fell victim to a beautiful takedown entry that allowed Khabib to get the full mount position immediately. From that point on, it was business as usual for the Russian. He dominated Gaethje on the ground before choking him out with a triangle choke.

Nurmagomedov was visibly emotional at the end of the fight due to the recent passing of his father Abudlmanap Nurmagomedov. In his post-fight interview with Jon Anik, Nurmagomedov announced that this was his last fight as he put his gloves on the mat.

Many fighters and celebrities were watching UFC 254 and they had a lot to say about the main event. Here are some of their reactions:
