After Khabib Nurmagomedov will retire in the UFC 254, many fighters were named candidates for the title. For his part, the President of the most important Mixed Martial Arts entity on the planet, Dana White, made it clear that they will wait for him to confirm or not his decision. But, in these last hours, the Dagestani himself expressed what will happen with his reign, which sounded like a bomb in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Taking into account the above, Nurmagomedov left a controversial message a few hours ago. «The three best lightweight fighters right now? Poirier, Mcgregor and Islam Makhachev. He’s not in the top five yet, but those are the best fighters. My belt will be taken by the winner of Dustin and Conor«, Was what highlighted the undefeated champion of the division, who still excites his fans with reaching 30-0.
“We are in contact with Dana White, we have not discussed why the belt is not vacant. Apparently they want me to come back. I’ve been in the league for nine years, there is already a history, a fan base, their wishes are clear. I will not hide the fact that they offer to return, offer conditions, and fighters. We will meet with Dana soon, we will talk. I would not like there to be the possibility of his coming back “, he added to his words Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Of course, these sayings were somewhat confusing, so his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, had to give a clarification on Twitter to change the course of this story. Many took the comments from Nurmagomedov as an affirmation that a new champion would emerge from UFC 257. But, according to what the renowned agent said, Khabib tried to actually say that he expects Poirier or Mcgregor they eventually get to fight for the lightweight title.
Days ago, Daniel Cormier raised another rumor. “If you’re Dana White, I think she’s playing it exactly the way she needs to and I don’t know where Khabib is personally. But if you still ask me, I know this guy is a man of his word, so I don’t know what he’s going to do. It would have to be Georges St-Pierre. I think a great fight is what he would want in order to prove himself. As you said, Khabib Nurmagomedov he’s just trying to make history and a win over Georges St-Pierre would do exactly that for him, ”he noted.
