Khabib Nurmagomedov, former undefeated champion of UFC, was fury for his last words. The Dagestani referred to the new fight of Islam Makhachev, who will face Thiago Moisés this Saturday night. His partner and cousin will have a new war, the one that could better position him among the Lightweights. Therefore, he assured that he will be the new champion of the division.
Speaking to ESPN, Nurmagomedov He expressed: “My father told me, I remember, ‘When you are going to finish your degree, Islam has to come later. It has to be at the same time, because you are three different years old from each other. ‘ I told the Islam: ‘You’re a little late, bro. You’re only in the top 10, in the 9. Right now, you’re supposed to be in the top three. ‘
“But this guy is late, but this Saturday he has to prove himself and show the world who he is Islam Makhachev, not just Khabib’s sparring partner or brother of Khabib. No, it has to be Islam Makhachev, the best in the world. Like, ‘Eight fights won in a row. He beat everyone and this guy has to fight for the title. ‘ Not because he’s my brother or friend or something like that. And this Saturday he will show it, “he said.
Feel that you are ready
In that sense, Khabib He highlighted: «He is going to turn 30 in October. This is the perfect time to show the world who is the best. When I was 30 years old, I became a lightweight champion of UFC. When you are 30 years old, I think your best mental and physical condition becomes at the same level: 30, 31, 32, this is the perfect age. And right now, Islam at this age has a very good winning streak.
“Mentally, physically, his boxing, kicking, his wrestling, everything, I think he’s a little bit ahead of all these guys. I really think it can take down Dustin Poirier. Maybe Dustin is going to be mad. You can maim Charles Oliveira. I don’t think Charles can play him like that, all jiu-jitsu, guard, I don’t think so. I really do. We just need time. We only need time and not accidents, “he said. Khabib Nurmagomedov.
