Never, ever count Paul Craig out.

Undefeated UFC newcomer Magomed Ankalaev was in complete control for almost the entire duration of his three-round bout vs. Craig at UFC London on Saturday, and by all indications he was about to cruise to a unanimous decision win after repeatedly pummeling Craig with ground and pound.

However, with just seconds remaining in the bout, Craig threw up a Hail Mary triangle choke that forced Ankalaev to tap out at the 4:59 mark of the final round:

Craig’s clutch finish was the latest submission in a three-round fight in UFC history.

The win snapped a two-fight skid for the Scotsman who was a massive underdog heading into fight night. He improved to 2-2 inside the Octagon and 10-2 overall.
