Round 4: Conor stalks forward, waving his right hand. And now he lands a left that thrills the crowd. Khabib lands a right hand of his own, and that gave Conor pause. Khabib not afraid to wing that right hand, and he has been when standing. Crowd chants “CONOR,” as Khabib lowers his head and shoots for the takedown. That took the air out of the room, at least momentarily. McGregor back to a knee on fence, but he’s expending a lot of energy in preventive measures here, a frustration that we knew might be the case. Now Khabib in full mount, as McGregor is on his side. McGregor’s corner can only watch as their man is being wrangled with an eternity of time remaining on the clock — half the round to go. A series of left hands from Nurmagomedov, and now he gets the rear-naked choke…and there comes the tap. It’s over. Wow. Pandemonium breaks out…
