The Nurmagomedov family just keeps on winning. Usman Nurmagomedov scored his second straight win inside the Bellator cage by running right over Manny Muro in the very first round at Bellator 263 in Los Angeles, Calif.
From the jump, it was clear that Muro was outmatched because Nurmagomedov was just too quick and too smooth with his wrestling transitions. If that weren’t enough, his kicking game was on point, blasting Muro with one high kick after another.

Towards the end of the round, Nurmagomedov clipped Muro with a nasty knee to the liver that dropped him to the canvas. From there, he pounced on his wounded foe and delivered some relentless ground-and-pound to put an end to the fight. The 23-year old improves to 13-0, 2-0 under the Bellator umbrella.
And coach Khabib Nurmagomedov picks up yet another win, as well.
