The UFC President, Dana White, spoke with the media hours ago and was forceful about Khabib Nurmagomedov. After retiring after beating Justin Gaethje at UFC 254, the Dagestani wants to fulfill what was his deceased father’s dream: a 30-0 record. So far he has only been able to reach victory number twenty-nine, so the president wants to know if there will be a last battle or not.
It’s going to be a five-minute conversation. It is yes or no. It is yes or no. When I left Abu Dhabi the last time, and he and I were texting, we talked about why I think I should keep fighting. He was super excited to get out of that fight. I know he wants to fight, but his convictions are enormous and when he says something he does it. We will see if this time it will also do it or not, “he began by explaining White.
On the other hand, the president of the most important company in the world of Mixed Martial Arts communicated: «Now he has had time to rest, think about it and all the other things. This will be a five minute conversation. I think he will fight, but we’ll see. It is not going to be a long discussion or conversation. It’s going to be a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ ”. In this way, Dana hinted that she will no longer wait for the Dagestani.
Taking into account the above, Nurmagomedov left a controversial message a few days 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 go to the winner of Dustin and Conor “, was what the undefeated champion of the division highlighted, who still has his fans excited about 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 said. Khabib Nurmagomedov.
