After Khabib Nurmagomedov will retire at UFC 254, Dana White released new information about it. The President of the most important Mixed Martial Arts entity on the planet caused a lot of movement, after ensuring that the Dagestani would have one more fight. The dream of his father and lifelong coach, who passed away in July from COVID-19, was for him to hang up his gloves with a 30-0. Now, everything is possible.
“He didn’t say he would fight whatever, but he didn’t say no. He’s considering 30-0. His father loved him and I think he was super excited. He had mumps or measles or whatever, a broken toe, he would train on a stationary bike for that fight and then he would go in and fight. I think I was super emotional “, was what the American businessman began by saying about the possible return to action of Khabib.
Your dream is still latent
Continuing along the same lines, the president said: “He is still the champion, no one doubts that. Just to be more than clear, there are no vacant titles open at this time or any interim titles. He is the champion and we will give him some time to find out what he wants to do. He said he was going to talk to his mother. When you have a clear idea, we will certainly sit down and talk better.
“He is the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world. I mean that performance with Gaethje besides being undefeated and maybe only losing two rounds in his entire career, I’d say he’s the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. I’ve been telling you that Jon Jones is the GOAT forever. He’s not the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world right now, ”he also reported. In this way, the reality in the Lightweight is reinforced.
Parallel, Dana White He also mentioned the following a few days ago: ‘I’ll tell you this and I haven’t told anyone yet, but Khabib and I have been talking. He was completely excited that night when he got over that fight. I have a feeling I could go 30-0. Yes, I think it will come back. I don’t think he’s going to retire. His father wanted him to reach 30-0 and I think he wants to fulfill his father’s wish.
