The former Lightweight Champion of UFC, Khabib NurmagomedovHe spoke after weeks of total silence. The Dagestani’s words were viralized by a video that shared his own promotion, which is called Eagle FC. There, in a series of questions and answers, he was consulted about the title of Charles Oliveira, his possible return to the cage and the contest between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor.
At the beginning, Nurmagomedov He said: “He deserves to be a lightweight champion. What has he got, eight wins in a row? And seven of those eight were final. Only the Ferguson fight was decisive. I think he deserves the belt, so many finals and UFC records. It would be sad if Chandler won, if he became champion after two fights of UFC. It would not be good.
«I am very happy for him because when someone is successful, they have to be respected. I think he deserves to be a champion. I don’t think I will be the champion when Islam (Makhachev) reaches that level. It is important that Oliveira don’t misunderstand my words. I respect that. I think when Islam moves up the rankings after one year, there will be another champion. I think it will be Dustin Poirier, “he also summarized.
Words that make noise
Continuing on the same line, Khabib highlighted: «Oliveira he improved a lot and he deserves to be a champion. I don’t think I will be the champion when Islam (Makhachev) reaches that level. It is important that Oliveira does not misinterpret my words. I respect that. I think when Islam moves up the rankings after one year, there will be another champion. I think Dustin Poirier will be next on the list.
I think those questions will never end. I think 10 years from now they will ask me ‘Oh, there are fighters who fought at age 42 in UFC, will you return?’ I think these questions will always be relevant, but I would not wait for my return. You will be waiting a long time », he closed Khabib Nurmagomedov. Although many await his return, he was clear in saying that it will not be the case.
