When Khabib Nurmagomedov fought Abel Trujillo at UFC 160 on May 25, 2013, he not only won the fight, he also set a UFC record.

The judges awarded Nurmagomedov a unanimous decision, but it was an easy call, as he scored more takedowns in that single fight than any other fighter in UFC history had in a lone contest. Any guesses on how many he landed? No peaking at the video before you answer, as you’ll be able to watch them all.
