    UFC always releasing these fight clips of headlining fighters in the build up to a PPV. This is a good one.

    Easily one of Khabibs most savage finishes.

    Leaping shovel hook floors Tavares, then he pounces on him like a lion and rains down hell with elbows and some pin-point GnP, complete with holding his face in place with his left hand, while he smeshes Thiago with the right.

    Vicious...

    Does occasionally show good defensive boxing skills and a nice counter uppercut. He doesn't have any kicks or damaging offense though for the most part.

    Nahhh just great athleticism. The speed and power caught Tavares (who is pretty terrible on the feet) off guard and he hits hard as we already know.

    But literally jumping across the cage into a lead uppercut is going to get you countered against most good strikers no matter how fast you are and the windmilling punches afterwards were pretty LOL too

    To be fair to Khabib though he doesn't do shit like this against the good strikers he fights, I think he just knew he could blast Thiago out of there and figured he might as well get on him

    Sure, Tavares was just about to hit that sweep!

    It was super early.

    Poor Thiago. Those Elbows were monstrous.

    Khabib's speed and power are no joke. He just needs to polish his technique.
