MMA is full of surprises and at UFC London, Paul Craig pulled out a ‘Hail Mary’ victory against all odds.
Scotsman Paul Craig looked destined to be on the end of an absolute mauling against Russian Magomed Ankalaev.
Ankalaev had been cruising throughout the light heavyweight contest and was one second away from gaining what would have been a very comprehensive victory. That was until Paul Craig, who had been on his back for the majority of the third round, threw up his legs right at the death and somehow managed to secure a triangle choke which gave him the victory over the Russian with one second left on the clock.
It is the latest ever finish in a three round fight in the UFC’s history and produced one of the biggest comebacks in recent MMA.
