In the last hours, Khabib Nurmagomedov broke weeks of silence and left a message for fans of UFC. The former lightweight champion retired 29-0 undefeated, leaving many wanting one more fight. In any case, the Dagestani assures that he will not return to MMA and that he is now living a totally different life. At least that is how he shows it on social networks.
In dialogue with UFC Russia, Nurmagomedov He stated: “I am living the life of an ordinary person, not that of a professional athlete. I think living the life of an athlete is something like being in prison. Because every day you have to do exactly the same thing: train, rest, train again, and then rest. It’s like living in the same mode, at the same pace, without slowing down.
Once you slow down, you are no longer a champion. So I just got out of this prison somehow. Well, I miss almost everything if I can tell. There are so many moments when I feel a lack of competence or spirit, you know. There are many things that I miss. Simply because I spent my whole life making them. No, there was not a single moment in which I regretted or doubted my decision, “he added.
In the same line, Khabib He said: “However, I miss this competition environment itself, the training camps, the weight loss, and so on. Because it’s a kind of addiction and you can’t get rid of it, it just exists. Sometimes you just want to get into the octagon and kick butt, fight for five rounds in a row, and make it really difficult. But life is life.
“Even if it wasn’t now, at some point in my life I would have given up and said no to this sport anyway. Only time will tell if this was the right time to retire, it always does. Should I have or shouldn’t I? We can speculate endlessly. Khabib had the opportunity to fight with this guy or that guy, but it’s an endless talk, “he concluded. Khabib Nurmagomedov.
