Khabib Nurmagomedov sent to sleep Justin gaethje this Saturday, but everything had a reason and it was not random. Daniel cormier, former champion of the semi-heavy and heavy weights, companion and friend of the Russian, made known the situation that occurred and why the legendary fighter made that decision. The Dagestan-born had thought about how to do it, since he did not want to hurt the American in front of his parents.
“Talk to Khabib yesterday and we were talking about it. She told me that when she was watching the interviews during the course of the week, she saw that Justin said he would never tap. So when he was close, it’s his dad’s favorite submission, go to the mounted position, get into the arm, and did the triangle. I was going to do the arm bar, but I had listened to Justin all week saying she would never tap and she didn’t want to hurt him in front of his parents so she went to the triangle and just put him to sleep, ”DC started.
At the same time, Daniel she recounted, “He really told me that. ‘I didn’t want to hurt him in front of his parents, so I said I’d go and put him in a triangle. And if he goes to sleep, he goes to sleep, you wake up, you’re fine. ‘ That’s exactly what he told me. That’s crazy, right? He didn’t want to hurt Justin in front of his parents. Being comfortable enough to think about this in the moment is insane. He didn’t want to break his arm because if Justin isn’t going to play, you have to break it. And I didn’t want to do that to Justin in front of his mom and dad. Then if I put him to sleep, he will wake up and everything will be fine.
His retirement saddens
‘It sucks, because it seems like he’s getting more dominant. Before, there were many decisions. Kamal Shalorus and Gleison Tibau. People say, ‘Well, he lost a round to Gleison Tibau!’ Yes, when I was 1-0 in the UFC. It was 1-0 and Gleison Tibau had fought everyone. That speaks to the level of competition that Khabib got it right away. Kamal Shalorus is an Olympic athlete and Khabib had to fight him in his first fight in the UFC, “he explained, focusing on his early days.
“That’s the level of competition he had and if you’re going to punish him for that, you’re crazy. This guy has been on top and fought tough guys from start to finish. But as he progresses, his three title defenses all come to an end! All finishes. He finished Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier and Justin gaethje, and they were faster. Fourth round, third round, second round. He was only getting better and he is going at the top of the sport, “he closed Daniel cormier, on the global penalty that is the withdrawal of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
