Retired UFC light-weight champion Nurmagomedov, who scored a slick triangle choke submission of Justin Gaethje in his ultimate outing in October, has been awarded the “UFC Honors Fan Selection Submission of the Yr” award.
Stunning him with the trophy was his good good friend and American Kickboxing Academy captain Cormier, who after all jokingly determined to take credit score for all of the jiu-jitsu courses he taught Nurmagomedov throughout their time coaching collectively.
A witty Nurmagomedov fired again with a hilarious response as the 2 exchanged phrases of their typical banter style.

Regardless of UFC president Dana White attempting to lure Nurmagomedov out of retirement on quite a few events, it seems “The Eagle” nonetheless has little interest in coming again. For now, he’ll sit again and luxuriate in his award for 2020’s finest UFC submission.
