Umar Nurmagomedov continues to turn in eye-catching performances — this time at the featherweight limit, making relatively short work of Brian Kelleher to land an impressive first round rear-naked choke on the early preliminary card of UFC 272.

Nurmagomedov, the cousin of former undisputed UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov — who was in the former’s corner, managed to leap on the back of Kelleher at the Octagon fence just beyond the third minute of the opening frame — eventually linking his hands beneath the neck of Kelleher — forcing a submission stoppage victory.
