Umar Nurmagomedov scored an impressive unanimous decision win over Sidemar Honorio at PFL 6 in Atlantic City.
The cousin of UFC champ Khabib is now an undefeated 11-0 prospect who had fought once prior for the promotion. On Thursday, Nurmagomedov would return to the PFL cage in a special feature bantamweight fight on the main card, with all eyes on him.

During the fight with Honorio, many speculated that Nurmagomedov received a knee injury. After the fight, The Scrap’s Tyreef Cash was able to interview the Russian bantamweight. There he revealed that he received a muscle injury, not a knee injury, and that it just “needs time and ice.”
Nurmagomedov’s record remains perfect after PFL 6. When asked about his performance, he was not impressed and looks to get back to work right away. “I need to train more and evolve my boxing,” said Nurmagomedov. He looks to work on the gaps that were showcased in this fight.
Umar hopes to return in November, fighting once more before the year is over.
